Humanities Teacher Steve Lazar in Japan’s Mainichi Newspaper

Humanities teacher Steve Lazar shared his experiences teaching 9/11 for a story in Japan’s Mainichi Newspaper (the New York Times of Japan).  The article is about how to teach post 9/11 generation about the event in the future, comparing to how teachers in Japan teach about the Atomic Bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagaski. The article suggested that many high school teachers face difficulties to teach the kids about this because they were too young to remember at that time. The article says Steve is one of few teachers to be eager to make an effort on this issue. (Though this is because they didn’t get a chance to talk to Harvest’s other teachers, who all teach about 9/11).
