  • Parent expresses concerns about bullying to Morris Area School Board What can the Morris Area School District do to take a stronger stance against bullying? By: Kim Ukura, Morris Sun Tribune Published November 23, 2011, 05:00 AM

  • "MORRIS - What can the Morris Area School District do to take a stronger stance against bullying?
    That was one question posed by Cali Lebrija, a parent of seven children who are attending or will be attending school in the district, during the visitor comments time during the School Board's meeting on Monday night.
    Lebrija told the board she was concerned about what she sees as an increase in bulling, particularly at the high school, citing instances she's seen or heard about related to name-calling, pushing and stolen backpacks.
    “From a parent's standpoint, it seems like the zero tolerance [policy] isn't working,” said Lebrija. “You have a zero tolerance policy, and yet the bullies can still do it and the victims can't fight back.”
    Lebrija suggested that the district may need to look at a new method to combat bullying, since teachers and staff can't be everywhere or do everything. She also suggested more aggressive monitoring and more clear-cut consequences for students who bully other students.
    “I think there has to be a safety net for these kids so they're rewarded for standing up against bullying,” said Lebrija. “I think if you empower kids to speak up, other kids will follow.”
    “This is a conversation we have quite often, as far as the bullying and the issues and what we can and what we should do,” said Board Member Brett Fuhrman.
    “Bullying does leave life-long scars,” said Board Member Laura Carrington. “I definitely hear what you're saying and I hope we can do something about it.”"

    Worst Years Growing-Up: Junior High-Middle School? December 5, 2010

  • How to break the 'bullying chain of silence' Written by Scott Seroka 10:00 PM, May 10, 2012

  • "KASSON, Minn. - The small hamlet of Kasson is covered in purple. Purple ribbons on street signs. Purple ribbons on lamp posts. It is a sign this community is coming together, following the loss of a young life.
    Thirteen-year-old Rachel Ehmke, a 7th grader, took her own life recently. Her parents, Rick and Mary Ehmke, say she was the victim of bullying. "She tried to deal with it. We thought she was dealing with it and the school thought she was dealing with it," Rick said. "Words can hurt. Words can kill," Mary added.
    Fifteen miles west in an upstairs office in Rochester, Minn., Vangie Castro talks candidly about the issue the Ehmkes are bringing to the forefront. "Saying that, 'Oh maybe because we're talking more about it, more kids are committing suicide.' That's not true. Kids have been committing suicide and we just didn't talk about it," Castro told KARE 11. She is part of the Rochester Diversity Council and she's also on Governor Dayton's task force on bullying.
    Parents have been asking Castro what they should do if their child's being bullied. She says the first step is to contact the school or the school district. She also explains that if that contact doesn't amount to any help, feel free to contact the state's Department of Education, a human rights commission, and if the problems are serious enough, your local police department.
    Castro says PACER and have a number of very helpful resources.
    "It's important that they have proof, some sort of form of proof, like this has happened on this day with this student and I have other students that can back me up on it," Castro said. She also noted that bullying is prevalent and keeping it all inside perpetuates it. "I think the silence can be deafening and harmful. If you saw somebody steal something or vandalize something, you would report it; you would say something, right? Well, bullying is kind of the same thing."
    The Rochester Post Bulletin, realizing this is a community wide concern, did something they haven't done in 20 years. They put an editorial on the front page of the paper, with the bold headline: "PLEASE CAN WE STOP IT?"
    "The goal was to grab people's attention, say something's happening in our schools that is profoundly important. Its life or death for our kids," Managing Editor Jay Furst told KARE 11.
    In Austin, Danielle Borgerson-Nesvold says she's glad to see the community stepping up. Two years ago, she started Community Against Bullying (CAB) after learning her son was bullied. Last week, Rachel Ehmke's sister reached out to her group, addressing members in their bi-monthly meeting.
    "When you hear of a 13-year-old, and my child's 12, it was really heart wrenching because you think about what drove her to do it. She must have been in so much pain that she just couldn't... she didn't want to deal with life anymore," Borgerson-Nesvold said, holding back tears.
    Nesvold addresses bullying head-on every day; often answering Facebook questions from people from every corner of the country. Recently, she's been getting requests for a community action plan that will help others start CAB groups. Those requests have come in from local communities and from places as far away as Pennsylvania and Idaho.
    "It only works if you have the entire community. So this means talk to everybody; the mayor, the city council members, the school board, and churches," Borgerson-Nesvold explained.
    The conversation has begun in Southern Minnesota, where almost 1,000 people have signed up for a "Walk for Rachel." It'll be held on May 19 in Austin and money raised will be used to fight bullying.
    Rachel Ehmke's parents have broken the bullying chain of silence. "We found a card just last night that says 'I'm alright equals I wish I could tell you how I really felt," they concluded.

  • Bullies: What Is Bullying? ,

  • "...Bully. What does the word make you think of? For some people, it's that girl at school who always makes fun of them. For others, it's the biggest guy in the neighborhood who's always trying to beat them up or take their things. Sometimes "bully" means a whole group of kids, ganging up on someone else. No matter what situation or form it comes in, bullying can make you feel depressed, hurt, and alone. It can keep you from enjoying the activities and places that are part of your life. ...

    " Lyrics to the song Hero (red pill version) by superchick Many people are never know how bad you can hurt some one by bullying one person. I have been bullied, and trust me, it hurts really bad, not just emotionally, but sometimes physically. You should think first about how bad you may be hurting some one before you do what you do or say what you say. Always think before you do or say. Bullying is matter what anyone says, it's wrong. Bullying is wrong even if your friends do it or someone you know does it, it's wrong. If you know some one who is being bullied or who is bullying someone, you should really tell some one before it gets worse."

  • Karen Huff Klein Bullying Video: Upsetting Footage Causes Community Outrage (VIDEO) (UPDATE) The Huffington Post | By Laura Hibbard Posted: 06/20/2012 2:10 pm Updated: 06/21/2012 10:25 am

  • " Karen Huff Klein, a bus monitor for the Greece School District in Greece, N.Y., is receiving an outpouring of support after a ten-minute video of her enduring vicious bullying while watching over students on a bus ride home was uploaded to YouTube.
    WARNING: The above video contains explicit language and may be upsetting.
    After the footage surfaced, Reddit user razorsheldon posted a call to arms in support of the school official who was brought to tears by the group of children.
    From Reddit:
    Now, as awful as this was, there was a silver lining in not only the universal condemnation of the actions of these kids, but also in a call for support for this poor woman. Her name is Karen Klein, and if you are so compelled, please feel free to reach out to offer support. She has been a widow for 17 years, has lived in the same town she grew up in and is about to have her 50th high school reunion in the same school district, and deserves so much better than the actions shown by those in this video. Let's show her that there are still good people out there...
    In the disturbing video, the children can be heard yelling at Klein, calling her an "ugly fat ass" and telling the widow, "you don't have a family because they all killed themselves because they don't want to be near you."
    Now, under pressure from the local community, the Greece School District and Greece Police Department are launching investigations into the incident, telling WHEC-TV that the children involved will "face disciplinary action."
    The Reddit call to arms has generated many comments showing support, including one that summarized a local radio show's admiration at Klein's lack of response. The call to arms also included an email address in case users wanted to reach out to Klein."

  • Bullying Is a Big Problem

  • " Every day thousands of teens wake up afraid to go to school. Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on its receiving end.

  • Whitney Kropp: Bullied Michigan Teen Shines at Homecoming Game By Alyssa Newcomb | ABC News – 7 hrs ago. (Saturday, September 29th 2012)

  • "For bullied high school sophomore Whitney Kropp, looking good was the best revenge.
    Earlier this month, the West Branch, Mich., teen said she thought about killing herself after some classmates told her she was nominated to homecoming court as a joke.
    On Friday, Kropp had the last laugh.
    Local businesses rallied around the teen, donating her dress, shoes, jewelry, hair styling and makeup.
    The 16-year-old was escorted by her father and grandfather to the field, where she confidently took her place in the Ogemaw Heights High School homecoming court.
    Students on the opposing team cheered Kropp on with banners.
    "It's just so much right now for me," Kropp said. "I had thoughts about not coming but I actually changed my mind and came out. I just thought maybe I won't have fun. But I'm having a lot of fun right now."
    Kropp said she doesn't know who decided to pull the cruel "prank" on her, but had a message for other students dealing with bullying.
    "The kids that are bullying, do not let them bring you down," Kropp said. "Stand up for what you believe in, and go with your heart and go with your gut. That's what I did, and look at me now. I'm just as happy as can be."
