One Remarkable Teacher's Response To Freddie Gray And The Unrest

I reported this story the day Baltimore City Public School’s eighty thousand students headed back to classes follow the 2015 unrest in West Baltimore.

Dr. Gregory Thornton, CEO of City schools, sent a press release to families thanking the many students who got home safely and encouraging parents to talk with their children. He also pledged that students who engaged in rioting would be prosecuted. 

I went City Neighbors High School in Northeast Baltimore to get a sense of how students and teachers were processing the social unrest.
