Don't be a bully. LOSER.

New Video Release Below

by C.J. Westerberg

Below is an in-your-face portrayal (including coarse language, so heads up), of what some students are/may be exposed to, or more accurately, assaulted with.  Caring adults - parents, teachers, and the like - never really know the full extent . . .  a reminder when viewing these raw moments.

Video is not for the faint of heart. But, then again, neither is real-world bullying, like the recent Amanda Cummings story.  Video and back-story via Gotham Gal, calling for Facebook and Internet entrepreneurs to step up.

bullying.boys.jpgLike you, I am passionate about learning (aka education), and everything that may affect "it" - which at the core means what influences a child/tween/teen's "success" in life, which is both simple - love and understanding - and complicated, involving the theoretical, cultural, social, academic, political, parental, economic, and technological influences
 . . . In other words, we try to curate and riff about the big picture . . .  (To that point, we will add a new "Bullying" Tab to our home page - what other topics would you would like to see there)? 

But first, do check out the video below --  runs about 2 minutes.
