Back-to-School Town Hall: Bullying in Schools; Kids with Disabilities Tell Their Stories

Join the Council for a viewing of This I Believe. A regular public radio guest-writer feature, the reading of this short essay (written by an anonymous 14-year-old with disabilities) was video taped and published by PACER, Minnesota’s Parent Training and Information Center, in connection with its bullying prevention project. The video provides a brief glimpse into the experience of a student with developmental disabilities, as told by five different age-peer narrators (4 mins). Following the video, students with disabilities will be invited to share their personal stories of bullying at school.
