This week on Noon Edition, we’ll discuss bullying among adolescents. Indiana schools are working to prevent bullying, but many incidents fly under the radar.
School officials and youth advocates say many parents are unsure how to respond to incidents, and students are hesitant to tell on their peers. We’ll talk with our panelists about monitoring and responding to bullying behavior.
Join us Friday at 12 p.m. You can visit this site to be part of our live chat, follow us on Twitter @NoonEdition, or join us on the air by calling in at 812-855-0811 or 1-877-285-WFIU.
