Thanks to Steve Dembo over at Teach42 for the link to the Hero in the Hallway video.

After a particularly long day at work dealing with a situation involving bullying, this video sums up what is really going on and what I would like to see happen to empower our kids to feel safe and welcome in their own schools.  This is a problem that cannot seem to receive enough attention.  Kids learn what we teach them and I fear in the day and age of high stakes testing we have forgotten to teach our kids how to be human, to care for one another, to do the right thing even when it is not the easy thing.  We, as a world community, need to do better by our kids.
