School districts need to work with parents to monitor social media sites for signs of dangerous behavior. Students need to know that schools do pay attention to bullying and there is a place to go and talk and receive support. These are some of the thoughts of Ellen Zimmerman, a licensed clinical counselor, familiar with policies of bullying. Stew Cohen sits down with Zimmerman for a conversation on his public affairs show Northwest Spectrum.
A couple of the students at Prairie Grove Junior High School visited concentration camps and expressed their experiences in an interview with Stew Cohen. Other students tell how the Holocaust and the books they’ve read on the subject have changed their lives. This is Stew’s annual public affairs interview on the subject of the Holocaust taught in middle schools and junior high schools to thousands of students. Also note that students at Prairie Grove Junior High are exhibiting their work for a Holocaust Memorial Museum on May 19 and May 20 in the school’s library.
