Sturgeon Bay High School Acts Against Bullying

 

Recent statistics show that one in four teens are bullied.

At Sturgeon Bay High School, students and teachers are trying their best to control the spread of bullying within the school.

Art teacher Nicole Herbst says she has no problem confronting bullying when she sees it, but says she finds it's more effective when she does the confronting on an individual basis.

Herbst says that sometimes bullies may not be aware that their words are harming other students.

"Whether it's a racial slur or maybe (a comment) against someone's sexuality or the way they phrase something," she says.

Some students we talked to said that they don’t notice as much bullying happening at Sturgeon Bay as they read about in other schools but when it is seen, they try their best to stop the situation. They say they usually see the most bullying over the internet.


Note: DoorCountyDailyNews.com and Dr. Jennifer Olson are giving area students a chance to win a free iPad by writing the best public service message to stop bullying. You can read more about the contest by clicking here.
