Uvalde Kids Go Back to School 3 Months After Mass Shooting

AllSides Summary

Children in Uvalde, Texas went back to school on Tuesday, a little over three months after a mass shooter killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School. 

Students and teachers are not returning to the site of the shooting. Instead, former Robb students will attend two other schools in the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District. Plans are in place to tear down Robb Elementary and replace it with a new school. 

Some students and teachers chose not to return to classrooms at all; these cases were frequently highlighted by news coverage. About 100 families signed up for remote learning, and some parents chose to send their children to private schools.

Coverage was more common in left-rated outlets; while the story was found at the top of CNN’s (Left bias) homepage, coverage from Fox News (Right bias) was relatively difficult to find. Local Texas outlets like the San Antonio Express-News (Center bias), the Houston Chronicle (Center bias) and the Austin American-Statesman (Lean Left bias) also featured the story prominently.
