Following the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, a habitually abusive public school administration in Harlem's PS 79m / Horan School subjected over 300 students with disabilties and staff to a horrific staged school shooting.

Planned in secrecy, without any warning or notice to any of the victims, desperate students and staff were traumatized and struggle today with the aftermath. Hundreds of stories have emerged of teachers holding doors down to save their students while calling loved ones to say good bye. Staff falling to the floor in prayer. And brave acts of protection and heroism. 300 fragile students, age 12 and up, who have worked all their lives to remain strong and overcome emotional hardships were terrorized by this action, and most do not have the voice to respond, or even the voice to tell their parents!

Please sign to help bring justice to this school, and to not allow an administration of bullies to use the tragic events of Sandy Hook Elementary as an excuse to terrorize those they are charged to serve.

      As Horan School's students, teachers, and staff return to class this morning, may they continue to be brave, advocate for themselves and advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. Let them know that the law is on their side, both in regard to how a drill is supposed to be conducted, and also in regard to how protected their speech is by law.

      ...to "test" response of horrified teachers and students inside classrooms

    17. Lack of Press and Gov action Emboldens Principal

      Who went on a rampage threatening staff illegally for speaking up and demanding any apologies, post trauma sessions for students, or any explanation whatsoever

    18. Teacher's union came to school and threatened their own union members

      ...with two weeks suspension for talking to press or parents about the incident. The children still have no recourse and no way to communicate what happened. The children's parents are still unaware what happened to their children on Tuesday. Some of the children think it was still a real shooting. Asking which one of their friends died. Watching TV and thinking all the NRA and Sandy Hook talk and images are from their school.
