Governor Blunt understands why some parents are concerned about school safety after three recent incidents in Missouri..But he says they’re safe and he has people working to keep them safe. Missouri has about 520 school districts. About 517 of them had no trouble in recent days. But incidents in Joplin, Noel and Warrenton within the last 10 days or so have led to formation of a special task force of public safety and school boards officials who will make some recommendations about school safety next Thursday. Governor Blunt says the incidents indicate the three incidents cnanot be treated as isolated events. He calls those events a “massive societal problem.” Blunt has formed a special task force that will have an internet teleconference with school and public safety officials from throughout the state Thursday. They’ll review the task force’s suggestions and make additional recommendations that can be circulated statewide. Blunt also is adding an educator to each of the regional homeland security commission that have been established during the last year.
