In the 2014-15 school year, public K-12 schools employed 3,132,351 teachers, enrolled 49,178,890 students, and spent an average of $13,119 per student. Thus, if schools spent an extra $20,000 per person per year to arm, train, and compensate 1 out every 10 teachers to defend the lives of students, this would increase the average cost of education by 1%. The equation for this fact is: ((3,132,351 / 10) * $20,000) / (49,178,890 * $13,119 ) = 1.0%
