Sept. 11, 2001
|On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked four U.S. jetliners filled with passengers and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people. The attacks reverberated through the nation's schools. Following is Education Week's coverage of the impact on the education community that day and in the weeks that followed, part of a series called "Terror Touches Schools."||
