Bullying takes place in schools nationwide every day, and affects students, classrooms, friends, and families. The rate of suicide by students who are bullied is rising. All students deserve an education free from bullying and harassment.  Bullies need to know there are REAL consequences for their actions.  The City of Monona recently passed an ordinance that should go a long way toward holding bullies (and their parents) accountable:

The current policies do nothing to solve the problem.  Help us empower the students against bullying in ANY form.

      Kimberly McCreight brings to the forefront the compelling issue of bullying. Because of societal changes surrounding electronic media and parenting, bullying has become both easier and harder to avoid. It takes on many forms from verbal abuse, emotional abuse, to physical abuse.

      Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

      Many times I've seen English Language Learners subjected to bullying and when brought to the administrators attention they are limited in their ability to control because of fear of looking ineffective about preventing the bullying and because of the negative reflection on the district's leaders.

      It's important because our children deserve the safe, caring non-hostile learning environment they are promised in school policy. It is important because they are human beings and should have rights to safety, dignity and respect as adults do. Administrators need penalties for not enforcing their own student code of conduct rules. Please join us at www.bullytalkradio.org Your voice is important. Don't hold it in. Speak out!

      There needs to be clearly defined behaviors that constitute bullying so parents and teachers can advocate for proper consequences to protect all children and change the behavior of those who hurt others.
