Friday, September 12, 2003 - Two years ago, as Jason Ritter watched the footage of the crumbling World Trade Center towers, he vowed to spend every Sept. 11 in the classroom helping his students understand and remember the tragedy.
Instead, Ritter, 26, an eighth- grade teacher at Falcon Creek Middle School in Arapahoe County, spent the second anniversary of the terrorist attacks alone at home after administrators deemed his lesson plan "inappropriate" and advised him to rethink it. He said he was told not to talk about the tragedy - or else leave for the day.
