Completed 5 County Anti-Bullying Song-Reading, Writing and Rhyming [AUDIO]
Ok, get ready Saratoga, Schoharie, Schenectady, Rennselaer, and Albany Counties! You have childen in your schools who are so upset about bullying that they are willing to sing about it! Here is their (and my) labor of love!
The statistics regarding bullying are staggering. This is probably an old study too. There's child bullying, adult bullying, teacher bullying, cyberbullying - the list goes on and on. If you'd like to read just how much of it is going on, you can check out bullyingstatistics.org.
How do we stop it? How do we drill it into peoples' heads how wrong it is? I guess you have to start young, so with the support of Dr. Phil Fusco of Academy of Character Education at Sage Colleges, I proudly present a song co-written by six different classes in the Capital Region. Each one contributed either a verse or a chorus or a comment or something, and it was "sewn" together using a Macbook Pro, my keyboards, some software, and lots of Dunkin Donuts pumpkin coffee.
OK - Here is the song, with the lyrics under the photos.
