Center Alternative School is a last resort for students who have been unsuccessful in school. Many of these students’ situations stem from serious developmental problems at home. Issues of anger and self-esteem become catalysts for bullying. The vicious cycle continues as students become victims at home and at school.
What would it take to stop bullying in school? Students need to be willing to participate in the solution cooperatively. They need to feel a sense of belonging, empowered to speak, and pride in their involvement. Each student's message of love helps fight intolerance and contribute to the solution.
