'It's not ok for people to bully each other': Pasco students speak out

Published Aug. 14, 2015

The Pasco school district held its third annual anti-bullying conference this week, inviting students and teachers from across the county to learn more about how to curtail the nastiness that can take place among children.

Officials offered plenty of speeches, and there were plenty of activities to last a day.

Did it make a difference with the kids? Some who attended shared their views for a school district video. (We've been assured the children weren't coached.) Next, we'll wait to see how it translates within the classrooms.

Superintendent Kurt Browning has said bullying incidents in schools have decreased by 67 percent since the district's first anti-bullying event.
