Answers varied, but we took the most popular ones and created an infographic for you to share with your colleagues, school board members, and community leaders.
There’s no doubt that bullying is a problem that affects a huge range of people. Studies show that at least 28 percent of U.S. students in grades 6 to 12 experience bullying, and that 99 percent of students in grades 6 to 12 experience cyberbullying.
Bullying isn’t just unpleasant. It can have potentially harmful or grave effects. In fact, experts believe that there is a direct link between suicidal thoughts and attempts and being victim to a bully.
Students benefit significantly when they manage their time wisely as it teaches them responsibility and can enhance their academic performance. But often students need guidance to make the most of their time. The great news is that there are several ways you can help your students get more structure in their day.

Learning isn’t a game plan or a mandatory process to be followed by all students. Instead, it’s a way of life; it’s a part of our routine. To actively engage in constant learning, we need self-motivation and to find inspiration from the environment around us.
Building school culture takes time and is an ongoing mission for school leaders. One of the easiest ways to improve school culture day in and day out is through posters.
A simple poster can further create an engaging learning environment. Promote your school’s policies and expectations by placing posters on the walls, windows, and doors throughout the school.
According to the US Department of Education and the Institute of Education Sciences, parent-teacher communication, initiated by the teacher, is a critical element of student success. Parents report that clear communication provided by the educator increases their confidence and ability to participate in their child’s education.
Students have it hard these days. On top of studying for exams and writing papers, they also need to think about life after college, and which career path they want to pursue. The connections made in college can turn out to be instrumental in post-graduate life and are known to make the difference between the start of a successful or difficult career.
