National Review;9/16/2002, Vol. 54 Issue 17, p14
The article reports that the U.S. National Education Association is now under criticism for its advice to teachers on how to spend the anniversary of September 11. A list of lesson plans was compiled by the NEA. It has been observed that the focus of the lesson plans is less social than psychological. School psychologists warn that the detailed coverage of the terrorist attacks can raise children's anxiety levels. Critics say that September 11 cannot be understood as an historical event.
