STOP THE BULL!

|

…by Nancy

Bullying has been front page and top-of-mind in Westport recently.

How common is teen bullying?

According to a 2010 report  prepared for the Institute of Education Sciences (IES)…

“36 percent of bullying victims reported their victimization to a teacher or other adult at their school and 64 percent of students did not.”

At a  recent White House Conference on Bullying Prevention, President Obama and the First Lady had something to say:

 “Bullying is not a harmless rite of passage…”

              President Barack Obama

 “We all have a role and work to do…”   

        First Lady Michele Obama

  Take a listen:       

Come to the Westport Public Library  for information so you can help stop the bull.
