Free screening of "Bully" followed by Q&A Session
On Tueday, February 12, Georgia Southern University College of Education (COE) will host a free screening of "Bully," a documentary following five stories of children and families who are affected deeply by bullying within the course of a school year. The screening, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 6 p.m. in University Hall, room 156, located on the Armstrong Campus.
Following the screening, the College will host a question and answer session with expert panelists discussing the movie themes.
With intimate glimpses into homes, classrooms, cafeterias, and principals' offices, the film offers insight into the lives of bullied, ridiculed children.
Historically, seemingly small instances of labeling and ridicule have catastrophic consequences for the marginalized groups involved. This film brings those “small” instances into the spotlight, creating a space to discuss the effects of bullying. The accompanying guide tells the personal stories of those bullied, and suggests that improving school climate takes fostering a reflective and engaging learning community.
