YouTube

ST. CLOUD – “Comfortable, fun, and enlightening” – those were a few of the words 7 Apollo and Tech High School students used to describe a closed-door talking session on bullying on Tuesday afternoon.

Apollo was the latest stop for members of the Governor’s Task Force for the Prevention of Bullying, who have been traveling around the state holding listening sessions with students, parents and teachers.

Dr. Walter Roberts Jr. is the co-chair of the task force. He says these sessions are crucial in bringing to light new developments – like bullying through the internet.

When asked how teachers and administration can help, the students agreed – they could and should offer more talking sessions, where students can be honest about they’re feeling without being judged.
