Arming most teachers is not a good idea
This is probably true. The majority of teachers would not have the will to use a weapon to protect our kids, but that doesn't mean that some of us don't. It would have to be voluntary, of course, with a certain amount of required training.

Still, schools can be better designed to protect people in classrooms
No doubt about that. I think about our building with its 8 entrances, and how most anyone can get in any of them, anytime. There's a lot that could be done to harden schools as targets, but it requires dropping the denial that bad things could happen to your school. Many schools are struggling to make ends meet financially as well, and more security involves money.
