#ArmMeWith, el movimiento contra las armas en las escuelas en EUA

De nadie es desconocida la problemática con las armas de fuego en Estados Unidos y las consecuencias que ha tenido en diversas escuelas del país. Recientemente otro tiroteo tuvo lugar en Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, en Florida y, tras el lamentable caso, el presidente Donald Trump sugirió que los maestros debían recibir entrenamiento con armas y que, además, pudieran poseerlas.

A raíz de esto, maestros se han manifestado y comenzaron un movimiento en redes sociales con la finalidad de que el mundo (y Trump) sepan cuáles son las verdaderas necesidades en sus aulas de clase.

A través del hashtag #ArmMeWith, las educadoras Brittany Wheaton y Olivia Bertels comenzaron a pedir que más maestros compartieran sus pensamientos sobre cómo garantizar la seguridad y la educación de sus alumnos.

Aquí algunos ejemplos:

“Ármenme con útiles escolares”

R E A L • W O R L D • S O L U T I O N S • my friend @thesuperheroteacher and I think that we should find more practical solutions than giving teachers guns. I hope you’ll take the same stance and read the explanation on my stories as to why. Join us. #armmewith

“Ármenme con los recursos y fondos necesarios para ayudar a los estudiantes que sufren de problemas mentales”

#armmewith the resources and funding needed to help students experiencing mental health issues, NOT guns. Teachers, now (more than ever) is the time to take and stand and say we will not accept another one of our students being lost to another senseless school shooting. We have to strive for MORE. Our students deserve it. Call, write, march… do whatever you can to show enough is enough— we NEED stronger gun laws, we NEED funding for mental health issues, we NEED our students to L I V E so they can change the future of this country. #resist #standup #guncontrol #enoughisenough #notonemore #gunsafety #schoolsafety #mentalhealth #teachertribe #iteachtoo #teachersmatter

“Ármenme con la verdad”

We cannot afford to ignore the truth about what is happening in our country. What is truly frightening is the number of people who refuse to make decisions based upon facts. It is a fact that families sent their loved ones to school and now they are planning funerals. It is a fact that futures were ended when they were just beginning. It is a fact that too many students have lost their lives in a space where they are supposed to be educated and protected. It is a fact that too many people in power are not using that power to bring about the necessary changes that could prevent things like this from happening. Far too many bullets claim our students in the streets for them to claim our students in school, too. We don’t need rhetoric when reality is working overtime. #ArmMeWith the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. • • • • • #education #teacher #teachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #teacherspayteachers #tpt #englishteacher #highschool #blackteachersrock #blackboyjoy #thedapperteacher #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #armmewith
