SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JUN 11, 2016

Embracing Our Differences has partnered with the curriculum and instruction department of the Sarasota County school district and Facing History and Ourselves to present “Embrace Courage: Bullying Prevention in Schools,” a three-day workshop designed to give area educators the skills and tools they need to take a stand against bullying on and off campus. “No community is immune to the devastating effects of bullying, including cyber bullying," says Michael Shelton, executive director of Embracing Our Differences. "Surveys of Sarasota and Manatee county students show that nearly 40 percent of them fear bullying and that nearly 11 percent have skipped school to avoid it.” The workshop is June 8–10, 8:30am–4pm at the Suncoast Technical College.
