#5964. In the United States, an estimated 1.6 million students in grades six through ten are bullied one or more times per week – and as many as 150,000 victims cut classes each day just to avoid it.
In this program, Dr. James Shaw, author of Jack and Jill: Why They Kill, explains how to confront and counter bullying in the nation’s schools.
Candid interviews with bullied students including Evan Ramsey, convicted of killing his school’s principal and a classmate, as well as with two reformed bullies – one male, one female – provide a wide-ranging peer perspective on school violence.
Students also share their successes as part of anti-bullying and peer mediation programs in their schools.
