As for teaching about 9/11 in schools; it’s still too early for extensive instruction out of textbooks. The Superintendent of Bend La Pine Schools Ron Wilkinson says much of the 9/11 instruction here is centered around safety and why certain rules are in place in case of an emergency. “And I think that's the kind of conversations teachers have with kids, and how different events threaten our safety, and why certain things are in place to are there to maintain our safety, obviously, America changed after 911 in terms of particularily everyone of us who board a plane and major changes in terms of airport security." He was the Deputy Superintendent on that morning of 9/11 ten years ago. He says the District phones were flooded with calls and many parents came and picked up their kids from school. He says they also had to deal with the trauma of students seeing it unfold live on TV; and some kids having connection with some of the victims of 9/11.
