Special Statement from AACTE President on Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

I have spent a great deal of time reflecting on the tragedy that struck Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. As a mother and grandmother, I am heartbroken by the loss of so many innocent children, and I mourn deeply for the victims’ loved ones. As a professional in the education community, I am struck by the humanity, professional skill, and courage of the Sandy Hook staff.
