    "Ryan Heber, 41, a science teacher at Taft Union High School in Woodland Hills, Calif., knows first-hand what it feels like to be face to face with a gunman, with little training: He confronted a 16-year-old student gunman who entered his classroom in January 2013. Coincidentally, his high school had given training on active shooters for the very first time just hours before."
    .
    .
    .

    "One classmate was injured in the incident. Having lived through the experience, Heber is a proponent of educators being armed with the knowledge of what to do if they are in similar situations."

    Heroic or foolish, depending on one's point of view.

    sure, ALL teachers need to be educated on handling crisis situations

    for a crisis active shooter situation, the first thing taught should be proper grip, sight alignment and trigger control

    ....then expand from there with malfunction drills, reloading, cover vs concealment..............
