HARRISBURG – All schools across PA would be required to observe a moment of silence to recognize 9-11-2001 each year, under legislation that was approved by the state House Education Committee. Under House Bill 1097, the Department of Education would be required to identify model curriculum that would inform school children about the significance of 9/11 and why they should never forget the events of, or the lives lost that historical day. The bill moves to the full PA House for consideration.
