Shots Fired on PBS via NETA

Thanks to the National Education Telecommunications Association (NETA), PBS stations across the country are airing Shots Fired — a short documentary about the school shooting at North Thurston High School in Washington State. On that April morning, no one was killed, thanks to the heroic actions of social studies teacher, Brady Olson, resource officer Ed McClanahan, and Principal Steve Rood.

Contact your local Public Television Station to ask about Shots Fired.
