BlogHer Spotlight

(Editor's Note: Internationally recognized author and educator Rosalind Wiseman plays devil's advocate when taking a look at a new anti-bullying program. Might it be a tad hypocritical for the WWE, well-known for over-the-top, scripted fights that advocate violence against characters based on race, gender and/or sexual orientation, to get involved with bullying prevention?)

The WWE, World Wrestling Entertainment, recently announced the “Be A Star” bullying prevention program in partnership with the National Education Association’s (NEA) Health Information Network (HIN) and the Creative Coalition; an association of well-respected advocacy organizations who focus on youth, racism, homophobia, education, and violence prevention.
