ALBANY -- Soon, there won’t be any high school students left that were alive during the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. In an effort to ensure that students still remember the history of 9/11, Gov. Cuomo has signed a new law establishing Sept. 11 as Remembrance Day in public schools.
Each year on Sept. 11, schools across the state will have a moment of silence in the morning to remember the events of that day and honor those lost during the attacks.
Cuomo says it is meant to encourage dialogue and education in the classroom, and ensure future generations have an understanding of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
