October is National Bullying Prevention Month
As November approaches and we approach a vote on school board elections, we are reminded of the importance of anti-bullying legislation being implemented in schools. Since it is National Bullying Prevention Month, Teaching Tolerance reminds us to ask important questions of our schools and their administrators and educators:
What action is your school or community taking to address bullying? If there’s no campaign currently in place, get one started! Action can begin in your own classroom or school. Raising awareness and advocating for effective anti-bullying policies promotes a healthier school climate and—ultimately—a healthier community.
