As high school students gather around the country after summer, most questions revolve around who’s dating who. Not in Harrold, Texas.
Students in this tiny town of grain silos and ranch-style houses spent much of the first couple of days in school this week trying to guess which of their teachers were carrying pistols under their clothes.
“We made fun of them,” said Eric Howard, a 16-year-old high school junior. “Everybody knows everybody here. We will find out.”
Well at least no gum chewing teenager is going to give his teacher any lip while his back is turned at the blackboard. The pistol packing pedagogue might plug him.
