What: An Alabama Issue Forum
Location: Selma High School, Selma, Al
Date: Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Time: 10:30 a.m. — 1:00 p.m. p.m.
Reducing bullying incidents will require us working to-gether as a community. The consequences of not solving the problem are enormous. While Alabama continues to make progress related to combating bullying, the statis-tics and stories of bullied stu-dents are alarming. Nation-wide, 28% of students in grades 6-12 experienced bul-lying during the 2008-2009 school year according to the 2008-2009 School Crime Sup-plement, and the National As-sociation of School Psycholo-gists reports that 160,000 young people miss school every day due to fears of be-ing bullied. The educational and public safety effects of ignoring this issue are grave.
Adults and youth 12 years and older are
invited to participate.
