The vast majority of America's teachers don't want to carry a gun in the classroom, despite recent violence.

That's from a survey by school improvement network, a company that helps with teacher training.

It talked with nearly 11,000 educators.

72% said they wouldn't carry a gun in school even if they were allowed.

36% of educators surveyed reported owning a firearm.

92% said they feel safe in school and believe their students feel the same.

But 88% said they would feel even more safe having an armed police officer on campus.

The survey was conducted in January, weeks after the December 14 Connecticut school shooting.
