GLSEN’s “No Name-Calling Week” to combat bullying starts January 23

America's Promise Alliance, January 12, 2012

"From January 23 to 27, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is sponsoring the annual, national No Name-Calling Week. The Week is a response to the bullying and taunting that too often permeates American schools, and aims to bring attention to the harmful effects name calling can have. The project focuses on creating a lasting dialogue between students and teachers to eventually eliminate name calling where it is present in order to provide a safe learning environment for everyone.
No Name-Calling Week is specifically targeted to children in between grades 5-8, who experience the most prevalent bullying of any age group, however, all ages are welcome and encouraged to participate. In addition to students, GLSEN invites teachers, counselors, coaches, administrators, and all other education professionals to take part in the Week and help teach children the importance of maintaining a friendly school environment."
