Nearly one third of all school children are bullied each year. That's more than thirteen million kids who face physical, verbal, cyber, and social bullying on a regular basis. For years, educators and parents have searched for ways to end bullying, but as that behavior becomes more sophisticated, it's harder to recognize and to stop. In Classroom Heroes, Jason is a quiet, socially awkward seventh grade boy who has long suffered bullying in silence. Zaria is a teacher who understands that in order to effectively stop bullying, we have to change the mindset. We have to enlist not just the educators and parents, but also the children to create a community that does not tolerate bullying. Classroom Heroes is a heartbreaking but ultimately heartening story of how one class changes its environment to end bullying, one student at a time.
