We have started a Crowdrise Fundraiser to raise funds for a brand new Bullying Prevention and Intervention tool to use in schools and youth-centered organizations. The new tool will be a film called the BullyProof Movie. The film will feature the animal characters and their assorted BullyProof characteristics. There is a second portion of the film that will demonstrate in a group setting how to utilize the puppets in role-play activities that teach how to confront bullying by putting on one’s BullyProof Shield. The purpose of this section of the film is to give teachers and other community leaders ideas of how to utilize the puppets within their environments. – For more information about the BullyProof Movie and the fundraiser for it, please visit Crowdrise: http://www.crowdrise.com/bullyproof!

“perhaps the country’s most outspoken critic of education’s fixation on grades and test scores”. SUNY New Paltz’s Humanistic/Multicultural Education program invites you to join Alfie Kohn in a conversation about common core and standardized tests. His thoughts and work in this area may lead us all, teachers, parents and school administrators, to some creative problem solving regarding the subject.
