After the school shootings in Florida and Texas this year the Star Tribune reached out to school officials, parents and students across the metro area to see how they were coping and what kinds of conversations they were having. We heard a common theme, "reach out". As teachers, you have an important opportunity to get your students thinking and talking about these issues. We hope this video can be a constructive conversation starter for you.
