The Department of Education is investigating after a group of students trashed the September 11th Memorial during a field trip.
Officials say some students from Junior High School 292 in East New York deliberately tossed garbage into the reflecting pools on Thursday.
The pools mark the footprints of the Twin Towers.
The kids were tossed out of the memorial after the incident.
Officials are taking the opportunity to remind people the site is a solemn place sacred to many who lost loved ones in the attacks and should be respected.
