There is nothing we like more than working with all the schools and students across a whole school district. So when Hasbro invited No Bully to partner with the school department and all its seventeen schools in its hometown of Pawtucket, Rhode Island we jumped at the chance.
Whenever an incident of bullying happens, it casts a spotlight on the students involved - the bully, the bully-followers, and the student being targeted. Schools can use the incident to cast light on what so often lies behind the bullying - the broken homes, the missing social and emotional skills and the mental health issues that have led to any particular student adopting the role of bully or target. If we pay careful attention, the spotlight can reveal to us the students who are at risk – those who are heading towards significant harm unless we interrupt their trajectory.
