In the wake of the Taliban massacre at a school in Peshawar, authorities in northwest Pakistan have given teachers permission to carry guns to school. Some teachers have balked at the new policy, warning that weapons in the classroom could have a negative psychological impact on their students. But even critics of the policy feel they must take strong measures to keep their schools safe. (Zaland Yousufzai and Bashir Ahmad Gwakh, RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal)
