What does this mean to our country? Teachers knew students would be looking to them for answers. "It is our expectation that we help kids deal with these issues, and there are many," said Glendale Unified Supt. Jim Brown. Shortly following the attacks, district officials and a small group of teacher specialists moved quickly to assemble a resource guide for teachers.
