Down With Bullies
What a great idea.
During the week of January 24-28, 2005, hundreds of schools serving grades five through eight took part in the second annual NNCW (No Name-Calling Week). Educators and concerned citizens banded together and created activties aimed at stopping name-calling and creating safer and more affirming schools for all students.
By creating an opportunity for an ongoing dialogue about ways to eliminate name-calling in communities, organizers have made a difference in their neighbourhoods. Why not give it a try in your area - it just might surprise you.
