Tamaqua Teachers' Lawsuit On Hold

A lawsuit challenging a school district's policy allowing teachers to carry firearms has been put on hold. The lawsuit, filed by teachers in the Tamaqua Area School District in Schuylkill County, claims the gun policy puts teachers in danger because it doesn't provide enough training. A county judge has delayed the lawsuit, challenging whether the union has standing to sue. The union has 20 days to file an appeal. A similar suit has been filed by parents in the district. No school staff are currently armed while the suits are pending.
