"Doing the Right Thing should not be this Difficult"
Here are some of the conservative statistics on Bullying and Child/Teen Suicide:
58% of students admit to being bullied, 90% never tell an adult.
Of the 10% that do tell an adult, 75% of the time nothing is ever done.
Over 5.5 million kids drop out or transfer schools every year and the numbers are increasing
160,000 kids skip school every day too scared to go to school because of bullies.
1 in 5 female high school students have been the victim of sexual harassment or assault at school.
Last year there were 35,040 suicides reported, 96 kids a DAY took their own life, suicide is #2 leading cause of death for ages 10-19.
An astounding 4,394,600 kids in grades 9-12 ATTEMPTED to end their life in the last year.
The team at Way Beyond Measure, along with the whole world, has been watching the increasing numbers of bullying, shootings, suicide, and growing lack of empathy among today's people. We believe in going to the root of the problem by teaching - CHARACTER Development and Positive Mental Health Skills.
