I wanted to add a brief post-script to the blog below called “Ending & Beginning.” We’ve just received the empirical test results for our recent Anti-bullying Through The Arts program at Heron Heights Elementary. They are typical of the kind of results our all-original anti-bullying program has been getting during the entire two years we’ve been presenting it to the kids.
At Heron Heights, less than half the students (about 48%)BEFORE our program understood basic anti-bullying concepts: that bullying hurts everyone in the school and it takes everyone to stop it. AFTER our 40-minute program, almost all the students (about 97%) understood those ideas. And this was before teachers began to use our books as follow up materials in their classrooms. That’s a big change in a short time. This is the kind of empirical result that we hope encourages other schools to bring our program to their kids. The Humanity Project Anti-bullying Through The Arts program works! Just email or call us for more information.
