FCCLA Quilting Project Fights Bullying
Prasad, Vandita
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v99 n1 p39-40 2007
Bullying in schools is a topic of serious concern. According to a survey conducted in the United States, approximately 30% of youth in grades 6-10 have reported some involvement in moderate or frequent bullying, and this problem affects about 5.7 million youth. To deal with bullying, 2 years ago, Byrnedale Junior High School in Toledo, Ohio implemented the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, a program that has received both national and international recognition. The program requires cooperation and support of administrators, teachers, students, and parents to be successful. FCS professionals can play a vital role in dealing with the bullying problem. By incorporating special activities and programs, they can help reduce the problem and transform the school's emotional climate. Byrnedale FCS students in FCCLA decided to support the program by creating a large anti-bullying quilt that would be signed by all staff and students. This article describes how the FCCLA quilting project fights bullying at Byrnedale.
