To This Day

I love Spoken Word poetry. And I often use videos like this one as quick writes for my students. A friend sent me this video the other day. It’s quite stunning. Bullying is such a hot topic in our schools now, and if you’re like me, you may be at a loss. Bullying is an issues, there’s no doubt about that. And punishing the bullies isn’t going to stop it. We change the culture of our schools. I think this video is a step in the right direction. (The transcript can be found on Shane’s website http://www.shanekoyczan.com).
