Addressing Hate and Harassment in Schools

Our schools reflect our society’s strengths, hopes, aspirations and many challenges—challenges that range from students who don’t have a home or enough to eat to others who are isolated or whose anger has become aggression. As Learning First Alliance members have reported incidents of bullying and harassment, LFA compiled a list of resources for schools to help every student feel safe and welcome.  

The Learning First Alliance is a partnership of leading education organizations representing more than 10 million members dedicated to improving student learning in America's public schools. We share examples of success, encourage collaboration, and work toward the continual and long-term improvement of public education based on solid research.
