Call in to speak with the host
Listen to a 15-minute live interview with Sprigeo.com Founder, Joe Bruzzese and Dr. Karen Siris, principal and professor has been featured on NBC and CBS News and ivillage.com for the work she has done creating a Caring Majority of "upstanding" students in her Long Island School. Her research on Alleviating Bullying received the Outstanding Dissertation of the Year Award from Hofstra University. Dr. Siris is currently serving on the New York State Education Task Force designing implementation of the new Dignity for All Students Act legislation. She speaks locally and nationally on the topic.
The interview will focus on the following three questions:
1) What is the school's responsibility in creating environments that are free from bullying and harassment? 2) What role do families play in raising children who are inclusive, caring, and who have the skills to stand up for themselves and their classmates? 3) Bullying is an age old problem, that persists in our society. Have you found any remedies to this problem in your work with children throughout your career?
It's good to talk.
