The National Teachers Hall of Fame broke ground on its Memorial to Fallen Educators during last year's induction ceremonies. It now plans to dedicate the memorial at this year's inductions.
The Teachers Hall of Fame has set June 12 for the dedication. Director Carol Strickland says it makes sense to honor the teachers and school staffers killed while trying to keep schoolkids safe.
Fundraising continues for the memorial. Strickland didn't list a current total but said fundraising is now starting to approach $100,000 -- or about halfway to the goal of $200,000.
