School Reopens

NPR's Adam Hochberg reports from Jonesboro, Arkansas on the first day back at school for children at Westside Middle School following Tuesday's shootings there. A teacher and four students were killed when two young boys opened fire on their classmates who had filed out of the building after a false fire alarm. All but about 20% of the school's 250 students returned to school today, including 1 of the students injured in the attack. School officials say the students talked with counselors during classes instead of participating in their regular lessons.
