Every child has the right to learn in a place where all students are accepted. And yet, thousands of students suffer daily from school bullying and harassment. Schools need to do a better job insuring the rights of each student. In this podcast I talk with Dr. Elizabeth J. Meyer, nationally recognized educator and author of Gender, Bullying, and Harassment: Strategies to End Sexism and Homophobia in Schools (Teachers College Press, 2009).
