Roundtable focuses on bullying, intimidation

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Another informal roundtable discussion was held today at chairperson of the Committee on Education Speaker Judi Won Pat's office. The meeting was held to provide community based solutions to address bullying, harassment and intimidation in the island's public schools.

Speaker Won Pat says input was provided by the Guam Police Department, Yigo mayor Bob Lizama and the Guam Education Policy Board. "What was very clear today was this collaborative effort which is a win/win for our school children, of course, along with the stakeholders, those who are concerned - bringing in the parents and getting them involved," she said. "I always liked the concept 'It takes a village'. This means it takes everybody in the village or the island to make our children feel safe in our schools."

Speaker Won Pat says she's looking at putting together a conference in January to determine what can be done to tackle these issues as a community.
