NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Department of Education is planning a statewide School Safety Summit next month.
Department spokeswoman Kelli Gauthier says the meeting is a result of concerns following the deadly elementary school shooting in Connecticut last week. Twenty children and six adults were slain by a gunman packing a high-powered rifle.
