ST. PAUL (AP) – The head of Minnesota’s largest teachers union calls the shooting attack on a Connecticut elementary school “vicious and shocking.”
Education Minnesota President Tom Dooher (DOO’-ur) says for everyone who works in a school, Friday’s shooting in Newton, Conn., is “profoundly disturbing.”
