ABOUT THE FILM

This week marks the one-month anniversary of the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

As we remember that incident, KUAR's Karen Tricot Steward looks back to a school shooting that happened in central Arkansas in 1974 and talks to three people who remember that day.

Two of them, Bob Williams and Wendy Efird, were students at Booker Junior High in Little Rock where the shooting occured and the third, Judy Drummond Covert, was a student at nearby Mann Junior High. 

In the work-driven, hectic world many modern families find themselves in, children are often placed in child care, where parents hope their needs will be adequately met.

But the reality is it isn't always easy for child care providers to deal with the disruptive behavior of some of the students and have complete control of the classroom.
