Joplin Superintendent Responds to PA School Stabbing

Wednesday's stabbing by a student at a Pennsylvania high school resonated with school administrators across the country. Joplin Superintendent Dr. CJ Huff gives News Talk KZRG his reaction.

"I think it clearly points to the need for an increase in mental health services for kids that need it. We tend to know who those kids are, who are volatile, and try to put support in place when it comes to those kids and their families."

Huff says there's value in being proactive when it comes to students' mental health. We asked Huff if it's nearing the point of needing metal detectors at schools:

"I sure hope not. This is a terrible tragedy and you want to prevent certain things like that, it's just hard to fathom."
