Community members mourning at the vigil for the death of 19 students and two adults during the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School on May 25, 2022.

Nineteen students and two teachers were killed at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde at the end of the last school year. We learned a lot over the summer about what happened that day. Still, not much has changed for Texas schools as students head back to class this month.

Tony Plohetski from the Austin American-Statesman and KVUE joins us to talk about his reporting on the tragedy.
