Teaching Tolerance Magazine

Issue 26, Fall 2004


Building Community in our Schools

Five years after their community became the setting for a national storyline, the people of Columbine High School reflect in the Fall 2004 issue of Teaching Tolerance.

An educator looks back at trying to lesson plan after a tragedy. A student redefines Columbine as a symbol of perseverance. And a principal still struggles to find answers.

These harrowing stories frame a special section on building inclusive communities in schools, where all can feel welcome and safe.
