Giving Value and Voice to Kids with NCEA Rise

Welcome to this episode of the NCEA podcast! Today, your host, John Galvan, VP of Assessments at NCEA, is joined by Jodee Blanco. For the past two decades, since the release of her memoir, The New York Times bestseller, Please Stop Laughing at Me…, Jodee has been traveling to schools and dioceses sharing her story to motivate change in the anti-bullying movement, guiding schools to a place of deeper tolerance, compassion and hope. Join us in today's episode as they talk about all things bullying: the problem and the solutions!

We want to thank Jodee Blanco, one of the first voices of the anti-bullying movement, for being our guest today. Thank you for listening to this episode of the NCEA Rise podcast!
