Reality matters. Cruel schools

Format: DVD 2004
Availability: Unavailable 0 copies
Taunting, teasing, and the playground brawl used to be considered child's play. Now most kids and experts say bullying is the first step of a continuum of school violence that can escalate to murder.
This is an excellent program to alert students to their responsibility to stop bullying, taunting, teasing, harassing, verbal abuse, and fighting. The perpetrators, victims, parents, teachers, administrators and concerned students who talk about bullying present a kaleidoscope of viewpoints, scenes, and perspectives, pulled together by an unseen narrator. The program starts with a reminder of the Columbine tragedy and other schools marred by violence and death. Beginning in elementary school, students are harrased for being different. Victims are afraid that telling an adult will lead to greater problems, but this is wrong. Students who witness others being harassed must tell an adult and not encourage or admire the perpetrator.
