Teachers are easy to replace:
 
We have over 40 million veterans who served in our military.
 
Each and every one of them swore to uphold our Constitution.
Each and every one of them knows how to respect our flag.
Each and every one of them signed their life up on the dotted line and served in our military.
 
For those who were in logistics in either the Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy or Coast Guard... they have ample mathematical skills to teach math.
 
You tell them how much square feet they have available (320,000 sq feet), how many troops (200,000), and they will calculate how many eggs are needed each day for breakfast, how many lunch hamburgers are required, how many spagetties are needed for dinner, how many gallons of milk, water, flower, eggs, pork, beef, potatoes, heads of lettuce, etc. are required per day, every day for the entire duration of that tour of duty required. They will tell you how many tents or buildings will be required, what material they should be built from, etc. to house all of them. They also can easily calculate how many toilets and showers are required to boot. Not to mention the size and seating capacity of the cafeteria, the kitchen and what equipment that kitchen might require for that number of people.
 
For those who worked in the biolabs, they've been trained in biological weapons and counter measures, and are more than well prepared to teach science.
 
For those historian in the military, they will teach our kids about everything great our country has done since it's inception as a history teacher.
 
Etc. et.al...
 
We need look no further than our military veterans to fill the seats of those liberal teachers who would be leaving.

It would give them a way to ease back into society if they don’t have other careers.  There are always veterans who can’t find work after leaving the military.

Do you also think they can?

Walter784 says "But even if we don't rely on big tech, support groups, parents, concerned individuals, trained specialists, etc. should be combing over all the SNS sites for just such possible traits of perhaps somebody calling out, saying something that should be flagged for "further surveillance" that could prevent many of these things from exacerbating to the level they get before the individual explodes and goes stark raving mad and kills people"

Showtalk says in post 6940.84 "How do they ensure that they don’t target someone who should not be flagged vs those who should?"

That sounds like a legitimate concern.

Maybe. They need to test safe theories and try them out. I heard an expert on school and gun safety speak today. He said they can lock every entrance to a school except one, station a police officer or trained guard at the entrance and not allow anyone through without vetting first. If the school has a threat, they can add safety features where very classroom door can be locked instantly with one control switch.  It doesn’t address a child who may be in a bathroom or the office or a hallway.  It also does t offer safety during a recess period or when they are entering or leaving the school.

He said they would need to stagger arrival and entry times by classroom or grade, as an entire school can’t pass through the doorway at the same time.   In case of fire, other doors can be unlocked and opened for access as needed.

It would make schools less accessible, but also somewhat prison like.  If it could work, why not at least try it?

Prisons protect us from those who might harm us.  Now we will use schools to protect those we might harm from us?

Look at those numbers! 2021 and 2022 both saw unusually high numbers.  Do we know why?

From us or from occasionally shooters?
