Culture of Violence Part 2


Part two of our “culture of violence” series focuses on school safety and the impact of gun violence on kids and families.

Guests for the studio interviews are Dr. Julie Ford, Superintendent of Topeka Public Schools, USD 501, and Nancy Albrecht, professor in The Teachers College at Emporia State University, addressing topics related to school security and the learning environment. Two staff members from Family Service and Guidance Center of Topeka — Eric Atwood, Medical Director, and Steve Christenberry, Director of Clinical Services — discuss the challenges confronting children and families.

In a short field segment, Andy Koenigs, associate superintendent for Emporia Public Schools, USD 253, describes the school board’s decision to allow security officers to carry firearms.
