told KZRG that the district has a method for fighting it.
"We're arming our students with strategies on how to deal with bullies," Huff told KZRG during an interview Wednesday.
While not being specific on what those strategies were, Huff did say that the social media aspect of bullying is a a new thing that is difficult for schools. One problem, he said, is parents who do not know how to behave.
"Adults are setting a terrible example on social media with bullying."
Also in the interview, Huff:
-Said he thought the panel to review Common Core State Standards in Missouri was a good idea since it will give "conservative" Missourians an opportunity to look the standards over. Huff, who was one of the first in Missouri to support Common Core, said he does not expect many changes to be made.
-Offered an update on construction of Joplin High School
-About the state audit said, "I'll be shocked if they are only here six months."
-Did not have to answer any questions about the district going into long-term debt because of "might-as-well" spending. None were asked.
