Today is a step in the right direction for schools in Virginia as they join the nationwide effort to prevent bullying. The Virginia Department of Education, as well as a handful of organizations are sponsoring Bullying Prevention in the Promotion of a Positive School Climate, a day long conference in which speakers from universities throughout the nation will be educating some 500 school officials on the causes, threats, and prevention techniques of bullying. Feel free to look through today’s agenda here and see what the experts are talking about! Hopefully this will be the first of many efforts to properly discuss and resolve the issue.
