While there are so many careers out there for English majors, the stereotype of an English major wanting to become a teacher is partially true for a reason—many English majors do, in fact, become teachers. (It can be a wonderful career, and to be clear, we love and support those who want to become teachers!) 

That being said, the recent debate over whether or not teachers should be armed in schools is highly relevant to those who follow Dear English Major. We are followed and supported by many teachers, students with plans to teach one day, and of course, students. Who better to weigh in on the national debate over arming teachers?
