Perspectives on Tragedy in Newtown, CT.

NYCoRE has begun compiling resources to bring perspective regarding the tragedy in Newtown, CT.

As Bob Peterson, President of the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association, reminds us:

“In the coming days, we will mourn the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. But we must also organize to prevent future such tragedies. We have no choice.”

Please consider adding relevant resources.
