After last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., Darlene Kriesel set aside her lesson plan and spent the class period talking about the tragedy with her high school English class. Some students confided that their parents were afraid to let them go to school, and the students had to reassure them that they’d be okay.
"In an Era of School Shootings, How Can We Expect Kids to Focus on Learning?" is from the February 22, 2018 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Lisa L. Lewis and narrated by Sam Scholl.
