Sit With Us: Anti-Bullying Strategies for Arkansas Schools
Bullying is a major problem in our society, and it affects the physical, emotional, and academic health of our children and youth. Moreover, the experience of peer mistreatment can leave invisible scars for all involved—the victims, the bystanders, and the bullies themselves. ArkansasIDEAS’ Sit With Us: Anti-Bullying Strategies for Arkansas Schools calls you to join our distinguished panel, including national expert Dr. Charisse Nixon and veteran Arkansas educators, as they explore Arkansas’s Act 1029, an Act to Amend the State Anti-Bullying Policy, and problem-solve simulated scenarios based on in-the-trenches experiences. This course meets the requirements of Act 1029 of 2019.
