We know that fatal shootings involving law enforcement are not new. In the majority-black city of Memphis, discussions about race, violence, and justice are part of everyday life — and educators often foster those conversations all year long at school.

Parents, how did you talk to your children about the shooting and subsequent protests? Educators, how do you deal with students dying in violent ways? Students, what do you want adults to know about how tragic events like these affect you?
Please take a few moments to share your thoughts with us.
