The education community in the United States has expressed its grief at yet another shooting in a school in their country.

A gunman had entered North Park Elementary School in San Bernadino, California, as a visitor, keeping his weapon hidden, before opening fire in a classroom where 15 children with special needs were being taught. He killed the class’ teacher – his estranged wife –, fatally wounding an 8-year-old pupil while doing so, and subsequently committed suicide.

National Education Association President Lily Eskelsen Garcia extended her “deepest condolences to the families forever changed by this tragedy”
