giuliani pushing 9/11 re-education course for public schools

from ny1: Friday's anniversary of the September 11th terrorism attacks will be the start of reflections for schoolchildren in seven states including New York. A new pilot multimedia program called "The September 11th Education Program" was unveiled today in Downtown Manhattan for students in sixth through 12th grades. The seven teaching units are designed to help students understand the impact and legacy of the nation's largest terrorist attacks. Two DVDs supply interviews with survivors, rescuers, victims' relatives, and political leaders including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was on hand for today's announcement. "The idea of having an educational program like this for young people is very good. First of all, they're going to have to deal with it as part of their history, no matter what," said Giuliani. "And secondly, they're dealing with it as part of their present. Threats are still ongoing, the wars are still going on."
