    The identity of the Uvalde officer who used hand sanitizer while a gunman slaughtered 19 children and two teachers down the hall can now be revealed – as he's seen for the first time since the deadly shooting.  DailyMail.com can reveal the officer dubbed 'hand sanitizer cop' is Uvalde County Sheriff's Deputy Eric Gonzales, 30. Exclusive photos show Gonzales attending mass Sunday at the Getty Street Church of Christ in Uvalde, Texas, with his wife and two children.  Upon leaving the morning mass, the casually-dressed cop opened the door of his black Chevy Silverado for his young daughter and wife.

When he arrived home, a DailyMail.com reporter attempted to speak with him about the events at Robb Elementary and why he used hand sanitizer.

    The Texas House investigative committee released the results of their probe into the Robb Elementary School Shooting in Uvalde, and the report flags a litany of “systemic failures” behind the massacre that left 19 children and 2 adults dead. The report was obtained on Sunday by multiple news outlets, which follows the leaked release of surveillance footage showing cops failing to move in on the shooter for over an hour. The report assigns blame for the massacre to multiple parties, including the shooter’s family, the botched law enforcement response, and to the school itself. “Systemic failures and egregious poor decision making” were called out in the report from almost every branch of law enforcement and person of authority directly involved with the shooting. As CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz broke down the report, he explained that it identified a “lackadaisical approach” by the authorities who responded to the attack, and then he got into how many law enforcement officials were at the school by the time shooting was over. They also talk a lot obviously about the different law enforcement agencies responding,...

    (CNN)Just two days before students in a Texas elementary school were set to begin their summer break, a gunman clad in body armor rushed his way into the school and opened fire on classrooms of young children, killing 19 students and two adults, officials said.The violent act shook a nation already reeling from another mass shooting across the country just 10 days ago.

Erick Estrada said. Authorities say he was armed with a rifle and carrying a backpack. Tuesday's tragic event marks the deadliest...
    The Sandy Hook Foundation issued a statement 10 years after the Connecticut massacre following Tuesday's shooting at a Texas elementary school that killed 18 students.  'We are devastated about reports that multiple people are dead, including children,' the Sandy Hook Foundation wrote on Twitter. 'Our hearts are with the families and community as this tragic story unfolds.'  Salvador Ramos, 18, shot 18 elementary school students and three adults dead, including Ramos, on Tuesday morning after shooting his grandmother. Her condition is unknown.  Ramos, equipped with a handgun and possibly a rifle, entered the school and opened fire around 11.30am.    Additionally, 13 children are being treated at the Uvalde Memorial emergency room, as well as a 45-year-old man who suffered a 'graze.'  The Texas shooting now ranks as the second worst school shooting in the US, falling behind Sandy Hook and just in front of Parkland shooting.   The shooting at Robb Elementary School is the latest in a long line of gun atrocities to hit American high schools over the last decade.  In December 2012 the US was hit by its...

    Cohosts of The Five reacted to Tuesday’s horrific mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where a gunman killed 18 students and three adults. He reportedly murdered his grandmother earlier in the day. Jeanine Pirro voiced support for “hardening the perimeter” of each school and also posting a security guards at them. “I mean, these children are–they’re babies,” she said, referring to the young ages of the children killed on Tuesday. “They really are babies.” Pirro went on to suggest that many retired law enforcement officers would be willing to donate their time to provide security at schools across the United States: And I think that you’ve got a lot of people now – retired cops, retired sheriffs – who’d be more than happy to protect kids. I think right now – and I don’t want to get into the politics of it – but we’ve got to make sure that people understand, especially the schools and the teachers, that we need this. It is a crazy world today. It’s very different than it was five years ago....

    HI Everyone! Today we met the Maryland state robotics champions! CHEERS, and cheers to the kids from the Arlington Elementary School in Baltimore’s Pimlico neighborhood. READ MORE: Gov. Hogan To Sign New Congressional Map Into Law After State Withdraws AppealThe school itself is beautiful, and a building old enough that when it was retrofitted to a more modern facility, historical preservationists got involved. I cannot speak highly enough about how great a campus this is. But the real story today lay inside, up on the third floor in a computer lab. Three times a week kids on the robotics team arrive at 7:30 a.m., 90 minutes before school starts to learn, build and practice. (It’s a routine not unlike what some sorts require of student-athletes. The commitment extends to the parents too. I had a kid in a sport that required a 5:30 a.m. arrival time. I know, it is a total family effort.) Shoutout to the two faculty math teachers who run this project. They get to work early too. #aboveandbeyond. READ MORE: Olszewski & Hyatt Look To...

    EFEMADRID Updated: 07/23/2020 10: 31h Save Related news Alone 62 percent of public school elementary students received online classes by video call with some of their teachers since the closing of schools in mid-March as a result of the coronavirus. In the case of concerted schools, these classes have reached 84%, according to a Study of the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) that, considers that “it is still insufficient”. In both cases, the average duration of the classes, including the videos made by the teachers, was just over two hours a day. To find out the educational response of schools during the confinement, OCU has collected the experience of 903 families with children in primary education, which concludes that parents’ satisfaction with the online education received by their children has been low, from just 6.1 out of 10.

Other online teaching alternatives have been sending videos made...
