Seg. 1: Keeping Missouri Schools Safe From Shooters. Seg. 2 Making Ends Meet In Folk Music.
Segment 1: How Missouri schools prepare for an active shooter situation.
In the wake of Wednesday's mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, the 18th shooting at a school in 2018, we found out what Missouri requires for its schools to be ready to deal with similar situations. We also asked how parents can discuss these tragedies with their children before, during and after they occur.
