Parents call for change in wake of Spring High fatal stabbing

SPRING -  With signs in their hands, Spring Independent School District parents have a clear message for the district following Wednesday's deadly stabbing at Spring High School.

"It's sad that this had to happen, but that's why we want change right now," said one parent.  

Several moms chanted for change outside of Spring ISD's administration building one day after 17-year-old Luis Alfaro fatally stabbed sophomore Joshua Broussard inside the high school's cafeteria. Three other students were injured during the incident, and now parents are calling for tighter security, metal detectors, more man power and more supervision at the school.

Chelitah Brady said her daughter, a senior at Spring High, was standing next to Broussard when he was stabbed.

"My daughter couldn't eat…couldn't' sleep," said Brady. "She kept screaming."

Brady's teen daughter said she cannot escape those horrific images of Wednesday's stabbing.

Thursday's protestors went inside of the administration building and demanded to speak with the superintendent. The secretary told them they could not speak to him without an appointment.

Local 2 has made calls to the district about tighter security measures, but our calls have not been returned.
