When a student referred to Sept. 11 as "an accident," Thomas J. Buxton, a seventh-grade English teacher at I.S. 259 William McKinley in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, seized on the topic as this year's theme for an ever-evolving mural that students have been painting along the school's corridors since 2006.
