Middle School Violence
This Friday, Radio Boston will be running a segment on Middle School Violence. Here's a slice of their preview:
"In the 2005-2006 school year, 53% of school violence reports occurred in Massachusetts MIDDLE schools...We have heard a lot about violence in high schools, but now, the focus is on middle schools. A number of school districts across the state have started middle school violence prevention programs." -- Radio Boston preview
For those who have worked on United Way's Out of Harms Way
initiative, this segment should be especially pertintent. I'd love to
hear from everyone on your thoughts about violence in Middle Schools,
the causes, the consequences and the solutions at work today.
Listen to the segment
Friday, then come back to SpeakUnited and let me know what you think.
I'll compile our thoughts to send to the segments producers.
(Special thanks to Former UDubber, Gabrielle Dorsey for the heads up!)
