The Teacher Who Was Shot by Her 6-Year-Old Student Warned the School

In shocking news, the Virginia teacher who was shot in the chest by her 6-year-old student, apparently warned school administrators about the child's behavior before the tragedy occurred. The fact that this shooting was completely preventable is unacceptable. 

Sign the petition to demand an investigation into the school administration for allowing this shooting to happen!

The teacher "was shot in front of those horrified kids, all because the school administration failed to act," said her lawyer. Thankfully she survived, but she has a long recovery ahead.

On the morning of the shooting, teachers warned administrators about the boy's behavior, but nothing was done. After rumors the child had a gun, an administrator was warned. Again, nothing was done. When a teacher requested to search the child for the gun, administrators said to wait until after school. Why were school administrators so careless about a serious threat? 

The child should have never had access to a gun in the first place, but the fact that the administration failed to act when told about the gun is horrifying.

Sign the petition to demand investigation into the school administration for enabling this school shooting!
