FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - 68 % of elementary students say the #1 thing that causes conflict for them is being teased or made fun of. That's according to a nationwide survey by the Indiana Youth Institute.
A statewide workshop tour stopped in Fort Wayne today, where Naomi Drew spoke to dozens of youth workers about preventing bullying and dealing with angry children. Drew speaks around the world about conflict resolution, and says the problem in "our" schools is an epidemic.
