Only 5 percent of students who applied to Stanford this year got in. That figure is less than half of what it was 10 years ago. What gives accepted students their edge?
Supporters Renew Push For Arming Arizona Teachers
PHOENIX (AP) — A bill before Arizona lawmakers this session renews a push to allow teachers to arm themselves in the classroom.
Attorney General Tom Horne and other supporters said the legislation would protect children and staff in the event of a mass shooting, but opponents would rather have police officers assigned to schools. Arizona Education Association President Andrew Morrill considers the proposal little more than a ploy to expand gun rights.
The legislation is in its earliest stages, and it is too early to gauge its chances of passing, but a similar proposal failed last year.
