A panel of 28 officials in Newtown, Conn., has voted unanimously to recommend that Sandy Hook Elementary School be torn down and rebuilt on site, rather than renovating the building or creating a new school on a different site. The decision of what to do with the school, the site of December's deadly shootings, was "very emotional and very hard," said Laura Roche, panel member and vice chairwoman of the Newtown Board of Education, which must vote on the $57 million plan before it goes on the ballot for a vote among residents.
