April 2 event: Anti-bullying, positive school climate strategies
YOUR INVITATION TO AN APRIL 2 SPECIAL EVENT
Is Zero Tolerance at Odds with Positive School Climate and Safety?
Examining the Effectiveness of Anti-Bullying and Violence Prevention Strategies
In a post-Columbine era, what have we learned about the most
effective strategies for creating safe schools with a positive,
bully-free climate? Are zero tolerance and other punitive strategies
enabling schools to effectively serve and educate ALL children? If not,
what are the most viable alternatives?
Morrison Institute for Public Policy and KJZZ invite you to a special forum and panel discussion about school climate, student safety and bullying.
The event is free, but RSVP is required.
When: Tuesday, April 2, 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Where: Burton Barr Library, Pulliam Auditorium, 1221 N Central Ave., Phoenix (Free parking available in library lot; space limited)
