CBS – BOX OUT BULLYING
Lancaster County, PA – Many Kids Feel Powerless if they are being bullied or if they witness bullying. But some students learned today that they have the power to prevent bullying.
“So if we know that somebody is being bullied, we’re going to tell somebody at school and we’re going to tell somebody at home.”
Jeremy Rubenstein presented their Box Out bullying program at the Youth Peace Council. Students from 4 districts attended the event.
“Our school is like a lot of clicks and. The people sit alone at lunch and we should just join everyone together and just eat lunch together.”
“I think our school wasn’t terrible with bullying when I was segregated. This public schools, maybe they were pretty inclusive, but there are still instances, especially with specific people and things like that, where we do have bullying.”
Box Out Bullying presenters told the audience some sixteen million students have either been bullied directly, or indirectly witnessed a bullying situation.
