NYU students face a new school climate
NU students will soon be facing new school climates in New York City.
The state’s new climate-related standards, approved on Monday, require all schools in New Yorkers to have “zero tolerance” for bullying and harassment, with students required to have an open dialogue about issues.
“There is zero tolerance for bullying,” New York State Superintendent of Education Daniel R. Ragsdale told the board on Monday.
“You cannot be the bully and you cannot be silent on the bullying.”
“We are going to have a great climate,” Ragsdall said.
“This is going to be a new day.”
The standards include a ban on bullying and intimidation.
Teachers are required to wear a helmet, and students are required the same.
It also mandates teachers be given “appropriate professional development,” a standard that teachers have to meet in order to continue to teach in New Yorker schools.
This includes an education program that teaches students about “positive psychology” and “cultural competency.”
“I am so excited about this,” student Marisa Tannen told the New York Daily News.
Tannengen and her sister, Serenia, who are both students at the Purify wellness centre, said they felt “lucky” to be on the board of the school they are passionate about. “
Hopefully this is a stepping stone to a good future.”
Tannengen and her sister, Serenia, who are both students at the Purify wellness centre, said they felt “lucky” to be on the board of the school they are passionate about.
“We feel like we are on a high level.
We are a team,” Tannens said.
“[The standards] are a great way for us to have that support.”
“My brother was the one who got bullied,” Tansen said.
Tanns’ sister said the school was a “safe haven” for the students to talk about their fears and frustrations.
“Our teachers are really passionate about the curriculum and the students are so good at learning.
It’s really nice to have this space to talk to each other about it and how to deal with it.”
Tansens said she and her siblings felt they could not have been “more happy.”
“It’s really amazing to see our classmates being really confident about themselves, the community and the school,” she said.
