It is great to see Emporia State University, which is renowned for training teachers, step forward to honor those who have died in the line of duty with a National Teachers Hall of Fame Memorial to Fallen Educators. Of course, it would better if teachers faced no threat in the workplace, whether from gunmen or natural disasters, and if there were no names to be engraved on what will resemble a 10-feet-tall open book of black granite on the ESU campus. The memorial, which had a groundbreaking last week, is expected to be ready for dedication in August.
