(KCEN) -- Do armed teachers belong in Texas schools?
New state legislation could make that a reality, giving school districts the option to opt into a school marshal program.
Districts will have the option to appoint school marshals to serve on campus.
The voluntary position would be open to any faculty member, including principals, teachers, coaches, even custodians.
Before taking the job, marshals would have to undergo 80 hours of intensive training.
