Sophomore Class To See The Movie Bully

My students need a class trip to see the movie Bully and see how this attitude negatively affects students throughout their school careers.

My Students

How bad was bullying when you were in school? I am a teacher in my late twenties, and it is still significantly worse now than 10 years ago when I was in high school. Students see the world through their eyes only. They often cannot step back and see how their actions affect other people.

We are a military school in Illinois, that is a college prep for high school students.

We truly have a great group of students, but at the same time, we still have normal teenage struggles. Earlier this year, we lost a student to suicide. It's unknown whether his sexual preference (and possible bullying) had anything to do with his depression, but it definitely hit our students hard to lose such a great individual.

My Project

This trip to see the movie "Bully" would be amazing for students to step out of their own eyes and see how their actions affect others. It would be a great way to bring it down to their level, and get them to start thinking about their actions before preforming their actions.

We would really appreciate your donation to help us make this possible for our students.

We have tried to create a culture of calm in our school and this movie is made by real students, about real students and our students can easily relate to that. I think it will give our students an emotional connection to their everyday actions, and make them think twice before doing or saying something negative towards each other again.
