Neenah, Wisc. students beat down on bullying

Reporter: Ryan Dietz
NEENAH — Students at Hoover Elementary School in Neenah are kicking off their school year by marching to put a “beat down” on bullying.

“We don’t want Hoover to be a nasty school,” said third grader Addie Jo Lambercht. “We want it to have lots of nice kids and not kids that bully each other.”

“A lot of kids either have things about themselves that they don’t feel good about or maybe they just never learned about how to get along and how to do the social things that we have to do everywhere, including schools,” said Sara Kokko, a speech and language pathologist at Hoover.

The National Education Association (NEA) estimates 160,000 kids stay home everyday out of fear of violence. That’s why Hoover teachers and staff are teaching the 300 kids at the school about what they call “expected” and “unexpected” behavior. Full story.
