Groups Fund Anti-Bullying Expert

An international expert on combating discrimination and bullying will work with the Coeur d’Alene School District this year to measure the extent of bullying among students and help develop measures to end it. Steve Wessler, a Maine lawyer and college instructor who wrote “The Respectful School: How Educators and Students Can Conquer Hate and Harassment,” will visit Coeur d’Alene schools and meet with student groups in October and January. Wessler’s consulting work is part of an effort by the school district to crack down on bullying at all grade levels and change the culture that permits it to thrive. His visits and recommendations will be funded by $11,000 from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, $2,000 from Kootenai Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round Up program, and another $3,000 to $4,000 from the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: Do you support/oppose idea of anti-bullying expert working in Coeur d'Alene schools?
