I sent two of my sons to Totino-Grace after I began teaching there. I can vouch for Damian's experience with Grace's culture. It is a wonderful place that almost all students look forward to coming to school. Almost every student is able to find at least one teacher with whom he or she can find support. the other key is the number of activites and the percentage of students involved in those activities, so they have opportunity beyond the classroom to form friendships. I loved being a part of the T-G community. It was a great place for pur sons and a great place to teach.
I sent my kids through Anoka-Hennepin schools and they had wonderful academic, fine arts, and athletic experiences. Our hearts break when our kids are picked on--even moreso than when we experienced it. But bullying is not limited to the schools, it also happens in the neighborhood, the athletic courts and fields, and the workplace. Kid learn bullying from their ADULT role models.
Yes, that is how it will be solved. Not by district mandate or even by the courts. The other students say "knock it off". That is the culture other schools need to induce.
