Among the conferences I wish weren't necessary is this one on cyber-bullying, to be presented tomorrow, April 27, by the Philadelphia office of the Anti-Defamation League. This important and timely workshop, sponsored by the Verizon Foundation, will be held from 8:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the University of Pennsylvania’s Houston Hall, 3417 Spruce Street, in West Philly.
This is from the press release:
"The January suicide of 16-year-old Phoebe Prince in Massachusetts is prompting educators, counselors and policymakers nationwide to take a new look at a growing crisis: cyberbullying among schoolchildren.
"The Anti-Defamation League’s 2010 Cyberbullying Conference aims to help teachers, principals and counselors in Pennsylvania and Delaware take proactive steps to avoid similar tragedies in this region.
