Bullying Anniversary

It's been a year since we saw her, taunted and crying, on youtube.  Now New York bus monitor Karen Klein has retired and, with the money that poured in from sympathetic viewers, begun her own anti-bullying foundation.  Here's a follow-up article about her life and efforts.

I wish her well.  The original video is hard to watch.  I felt the students felt more and more emboldened as there were no consequences for the first bit of teasing... and they plunged further and further into cruelty.  I wonder what the students in the video are up to now; the article doesn't say.
