WASHINGTON – The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) today released Bullying in Schools: An Overview, the first of five bulletins examining bullying in schools and support schools can provide bullying victims. Bullying is a complex social and emotional problem impacting children and schools. In extreme cases, victims face shooting, physical assaults or other harassment that may cause them to turn to suicide.
On May 22, 2011 a tornado struck North Minneapolis, leaving many families homeless and children in need of basic living provisions, essential back-to-school supplies, and books. In response to this need, the WE CARE Community Reinvestment Initiative was created with the primary goal of ensuring that every child who was directly impacted by the North Minneapolis tornado (approximately 1,000 children), would start and complete the new 2011/2012 school year with the tools and resources needed for academic success.
