Episode 57: An inflection point in the school safety debate

The May 24 mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school has refocused a national discussion over school safety and gun control.

Mike Munger works on these issues on a daily basis. He’s the manager of the state’s School Safety and Security Program, which reviews safety protocols and procedures at Idaho’s public schools.

This week, Munger joins Kevin Richert to talk about Uvalde, the national debate — and the roles all Idahoans can play in keeping their schools safe.
