<<doesn't (sic) the police and military teach such every day?>>

There's one big difference between teaching emotional and technical response to armed assault to them vs. attempting similar instruction to teachers.

Law enforcement and military personnel realize from the get-go that the chance of such confrontation goes with their territory. They therefore are apt to be much more amenable and probably take much more seriously what is offered. There' a much greater chance they'll need such training.

Teachers like the ones in TX in my OP who can choose such instruction will probably do so as a precautionary safeguard, maybe even half-heartedly. They know the "Can't happen here" rationale is dead and that there's another Lanza out there somewhere. But still, their main focus is on all the aspects of actually teaching. I don't see the day when what to do at the OK Corral transcends pedagogy.
