NEA’s President, Becky Pringle, wrote a column in the NEA Today magazine January issue highlighting her experience of reading Dr. Sabic-El-Rayess’ memoir. She writes:
I first heard Professor Amra Sabic-El-Rayess speak at last year’s meeting of NEA’s National Council of Urban Education Associations, where she shared her horrific experience of living through the Bosnian genocide. The terror and tragedy she faced took place decades ago and an ocean away. But her message is extremely relevant today, here in the United States.
