President Biden in Kansas City

President Joe Biden was in Kansas City on Wednesday to promote the $1 trillion infrastructure plan that he signed last month. Plus, Kansas City Public Schools is rethinking its approach to addressing students coping with trauma and violence.

President Joe Biden paid visit to Kansas City to promote his $1.2 billion infrastructure program, which emphasizes green infrastructure in programs to improve transportation, roads and power. We have updates on his visit and a recent spike in COVID-19 cases in children.

Plus, community violence can lead to lasting trauma for teenagers. Some Kansas City high schools students are learning new ways to manage emotions and steer clear of conflict. KCUR health reporter Alex Smith explains the push for restorative justice in Kansas City schools.
