The bullying epidemic is one that has plagued our society for decades. Studies have shown that over 13 million students are bullied per year and that 160,000 stay home every day because of it. Studies have also shown that students who are bullied are 9 times more likely to commit suicide. These numbers are staggering and Cedric Threatt wants to do something about them. In order for culture to change, the mindset must be changed first. In addition to teaching his “No Bully Pledge,” in this presentation he wants to help teachers and students learn:
- What Bullying is and what it isn’t
- The long term effects of bullying
- How to recognize and combat bullying
- The most important “Ability”
- How to change school climate
Cedric also speaks to middle and high school students about bullying as well as cyber bullying (social media). Many bullies were victims of bullying first. That’s why hurt people, hurt people. Cedric will teach kids who have been bullied, as well as kids who are bullies the concept of resilience. This presentation covers the subject of how to deal with prejudices such as race, social status, outer appearance, clothes, etc.
