Teachers to be trained to tackle school shootings

Following fatal school shootings in Germany, Finland, and the US, the Swedish National Education Agency (Skolverket) has decided to educate all school personnel about violence and weapons at work.

“It’s critical that the faculty have thought through this and are prepared,” Annika Hjelm, director of education at the agency, told Sveriges Radio.

“When it actually happens everything turns to chaos and people don’t think normally. But they have to react quickly.”
