Bullying – A National Crisis
An epidemic of bullying is plaguing
America’s middle and high schools.
Directed at students perceived as
“different,” it is causing ostracism,
fear and, increasingly, suicide.
Held in conjunction with National
Anti-Bullying Month, this event brings
together parents, teachers and advocacy
groups to explore causes and discuss
solutions to this growing problem.
