Bullying - big problem for kids in Special Ed

Bullying is often a big problem for boys and girls in Special Education. Too often they are considered easy targets for bullies, and bystanders do not quickly intervene and stand up to bullies.

See today's article on about the K.A.R.M.A. Foundation and Jessica Brookshire. If you miss it today or have trouble finding it on another day, just search on that blog for "Brookshire".

Information about her Foundation can be viewed at  While Jessica was not a Special Education student, she was bullied in school. In the past two years she has spoken to 85,000 students, and she is definitely a young woman who is making a difference!

Watch for any news in the future about her appearance in McHenry County or northern Illinois or in southern Wisconsin.
