The ability for kids to go to college, to better themselves and subsequently their communities, can seem like a fleeting idea for many working and middle class families.
Bullying is an issue that has plagued schools not just in Maine, but across the country. Nationwide, approximately 160,000 children stay home from school each day to avoid being bullied, and the effects can be lifelong and even tragic. Most of us remember witnessing bullying or even ourselves being the target of bullying at some point in our lives. Bullying, and now particularly cyberbullying, is a dangerous trend in our schools that has of late resulted in fatal consequences.
