Anti-Bullying Video Goes Viral, Pwns Bullies

This isn’t Park Cities-centric, but I think the lesson is pretty universal: bullying = not cool. And I know everyone thinks HPISD is a place where dreams come true, but there are a ton of kids at those schools who hate walking through the doors every day. Just like anywhere, kids get called gay or homo or fat or poor or whatever else some clown could come up with in the hallway.

The kids at Cypress Ranch High School in Cypress wanted to do something about it, so they made this video. It’s probably got at least 1,000 kids in it, and it kills. Since they posted it last week it’s been viewed 45,000 times. So watch it, make your kids watch it, then vote for Cypress Ranch in The Great American No Bull Challenge.

Then go make a video for Highland Park. Or St. Mark’s. Or ESD. Or any school, really, because it’s time to stop letting them win.

    You are right. Great video (after first 30 seconds). HPISD’s bullying problem seems to lessen as the kids get older. Elementaries used to focus on how to deal with being bullied rather than dealing with the bullies. Hope that has changed.

    ESD and St.Marks both spent upwards of $15,000 EACH this year to buy an anti-bullying program called Olweus. Students and Faculty appear to hate it, my kids say bullying there isn’t a problem and the schools program is a waste.

    Fantastic. Glad to see the effort school-wide, and everyone involved in the discussion/project. Videos on issues like bullying can be powerful at making a difference, because of the media format. We personally found this video helpful within our family,

    but the problem wasn’t as wide-spread as it sounds like it is at this school.
