Cartoon Network Names Multi-Platform Bullying Prevention Campaign

CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360° to Host Town Hall Discussion Kicking Off October
National Bullying Prevention Month

Anti-Defamation League Enlisted to Provide In-School Distribution of Approved Curriculum; National Director David Warren Named to Advisory Board

Cartoon Network, a division of Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), announced today further details of its multi-platform Bullying Prevention Campaign at the National Bullying Prevention Summit in Washington, DC. Speaking to an audience comprised of government officials, business leaders and leading educators of bullying prevention, Cartoon Network’s President and Chief Operations Officer Stuart Snyder unveiled the official title of the CAMPAIGN—STOP BULLYING: SPEAK UP—which will serve to educate and empower young bystanders to take action to reduce/prevent bullying. Bystanders represent the 75-85% of students in schools that witness incidents of bullying every year, whether on the playground, in the classroom, on the bus, on social media websites, or cell phones. The STOP BULLYING: SPEAK UP on-air and online CAMPAIGN will launch in October to coordinate with the fifth annual National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, sponsored by the National Center for Bullying Prevention.

As part of a larger commitment to the anti-bullying efforts, CNN, sister network to Cartoon Network, which has to date covered numerous stories about the rise and growing concern over bullying in America, will also recognize October Bullying Prevention Month by presenting an Anderson Cooper 360° Town Hall event the first week in October, along with the network’s previously announced month-long series of stories on the victims, perpetrators and root causes of bullying which will air across CNN and HLN. Renowned and award-winning journalist Anderson Cooper will welcome government and education leaders, parents groups and child behavioral experts from top universities and non-profit institutions to discuss the many issues and concerns surrounding bullying.

“Bullying recently has been designated by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a national health crisis,” said David Doss, senior executive producer for Anderson Cooper 360°. “Taking a hard look at the causes, effects and, most importantly, the alternatives that kids, parents, teachers and other adults can take is what we’re most interested in exploring. Along with Anderson, it is our hope to help individuals learn that there are options available that can help put an end to bullying, particularly at such severe levels as we’ve seen in recent months.”
“We are extremely grateful that other organizations are joining us and proud to be expanding our efforts with CNN and Anderson Cooper on this crucial issue,” said Snyder, whose responsibilities also include all businesses within Turner Broadcasting’s Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media Group. “Our goal is to get these messages in front of kids wherever they may be—watching television, using their computers or at school in their classrooms.”

Snyder also introduced the newest STOP BULLYING: SPEAK UP partner, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). With direct inroads to schools, educators and local school boards, the ADL has a long history of pro-social projects that have helped to provide anti-bias training, giving students the opportunity to understand the damaging impact that bullying and bigotry have on individuals as well as the social fabric of schools. Key ADL projects that will link into Cartoon Network’s online curriculum include No Place for Hate, a free series of seminars for schools; A World of Difference®, a formal school curriculum; and Cyber ALLY, which teaches kids to be an ally to victims of digital bullying.

Additionally, David Waren, Director of Education for the Anti-Defamation League, was named to the Cartoon Network Bullying Prevention Advisory Board, a coalition of researchers and educators, as well as private organizations and government agencies to provide guidance, counsel and bullying prevention educational materials to supplement Cartoon Network’s STOP BULLYING: SPEAK UP program. Current advisory board members include Dr. Ronald Slaby, senior scientist, Education Development Center, Inc. & Center on Media and Child Health, Children’s Hospital Boston/Harvard Medical School; Dr. Susan Limber, Clemson University, Institute on Family and Neighborhood Life; Dr. Duane Thomas, University of Pennsylvania, Applied Psychology & Human Development Division; Dr. Anthony Peguero, Miami University, Department of Sociology; Captain Stephanie Bryn, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration; and Robyn Glass, Founder and Executive Director of Project Change’s You Have The Power, a peer mentoring program where high school students teach bullying prevention tactics to middle and elementary school students.

Cartoon Network’s initial steps include launching a new series of original PSAs that will premiere on Friday, Oct. 1, at 9 a.m., introducing the pro-social effort and directing viewers to key online resources at

United States Department of Education's Get On The Bus Campaign

Across America, school buses are rolling out to pick up students and start a new academic year. Joining those yellow buses this year will be the blue motor coach you see here, and its route will be more than 800 miles long, spanning eight states. Not your typical ride to school.Aboard the blue bus will be U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, headlining a Back to School tour with the theme “Courage in the Classroom: Honoring America’s Teachers.” Over the next two weeks Arne will visit schools that are facing challenges head-on—and demonstrating success. He will talk with teachers about how they are helping their students achieve and how the federal government can best support educators.

The tour kicks off in the South on Aug. 26 at iconic Central High School in Little Rock, where in 1957 nine courageous teenagers were the first African Americans to desegregate the school. Then the bus will travel on to Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. The second, northeastern leg begins Aug. 30 in Albany, traveling on to Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.All along the way we’ll be talking with teachers and other educators about the critical work they’re doing to educate America’s young people. We’ll talk to parents and students about their goals for the new school year and beyond.Joining Arne will be some of the Department of Education’s Teaching Ambassador Fellows, who join us from the classroom for a year to ensure that the teacher’s voice is always being heard.You can follow the Back to School tour here on, as well as on Facebook and Twitter. Look for updates from the road each day, along with photos and video from events and behind the scenes.

“Children whose fathers are involved in their education have greater academic achievement than their peers, even when taking into account their mothers’ involvement. Father's involvement in their children's education was associated with greater academic achievement, even when controlling for mothers' involvement" (McBride, Brent A. 2005).For more information please click on:

An exclusive interview with former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr

An exclusive interview with former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., who has announced he is a candidate for Maryland Governor can be heard on the Parents and PGCPS website an EduSocial Network for engaged parents and dedicated educators. Mr. Ehrlich will appear on eCommunity Affairs. The show is airing now. To join the conversation visit Parents and PGCPS.


Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. was Maryland's 60th governor. Governor Ehrlich was elected to lead Maryland in November 2002 after promising to restore fiscal responsibility to state government and bring needed change to a political monopoly that had dominated Annapolis for decades. The Governor made good on his promises, turning $4 billion in deficits into a $2.4 billion surplus and appointing the most politically diverse and qualified cabinet in Maryland's history.

Growing up in ArbutusGovernor Ehrlich was born in 1957 in Arbutus, Maryland, a small, working-class suburb of Baltimore City. His mother, Nancy, was a legal secretary. Bob Sr., a former Marine and Korean War veteran, worked as a commission salesman at Archway Ford in Baltimore for 37 years. In 1967, the Ehrlich family moved out of an apartment and into a row house on Dolores Avenue, where Mr. and Mrs. Ehrlich still live today.

Education Governor Ehrlich won scholarships to the Gilman School in Baltimore and later to Princeton University. While at Gilman, Governor Ehrlich was named captain of the football team and won all-state and all-American honors. His academic and football success continued at Princeton University, where he studied political science and co-captained the football team. To make ends meet, he sold sandwiches door to door at night, and worked construction jobs on the weekends. After graduating from Princeton in 1979, Governor Ehrlich entered the Wake Forest University School of Law, where he worked as an graduate assistant football coach to earn extra money, while attending classes during the day.

Legal Career After Governor Ehrlich finished law school in 1982, he moved back to Maryland to work for the Baltimore law firm of Ober, Kaler, Grimes, and Shriver, where he practiced for more than a decade. While working as an attorney, Governor Ehrlich ran successfully for the House of Delegates, where he was known for a collegial style that helped him build bridges - and forge lasting friendships - across the political aisle. He was a member of the House Judiciary Committee, the Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics, and fought for the rights of children on the Governor's Council on Child Abuse and Neglect.

Public OfficeIn 1994, Bob Ehrlich was elected to the United States House of Representatives. While serving in Congress, he helped craft the first balanced budget in a generation, sponsored legislation to protect innocent spouses from IRS abuse, authored legislation to help blind and disabled citizens return to the workplace, and led efforts to stiffen penalties on criminals convicted of gun violence. Congressman Ehrlich was a leading advocate for small business owners and helped provide record tax relief to the American people.

Bob Ehrlich's historic election as governor in 2002 ended the monopoly's grasp on government and began a legacy of reform. In addition to balancing the budget, Governor Ehrlich defeated $7.5 billion in tax hikes proposed by the Maryland General Assembly, while increasing public school funding by record levels. He enacted Maryland's first-ever charter schools law, establishing 15 charter schools benefiting more than 3,000 students in just three years.

Governor Ehrlich doubled investments in college need-based scholarships, helping 12,000 students go to college. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation called Governor Ehrlich's Bay Restoration Act, “the most important pollution-reducing initiative in the state in 20 years.” The Governor's plan will reduce pollution into the Bay by seven million pounds per year—cutting current levels nearly in half.

More than 100,000 net new private-sector jobs were created during his time as Governor. Maryland's unemployment rate was one of the lowest in the nation at approximately 4 percent and its welfare rate is at its lowest level since 1962.

Former Governor Ehrlich is married to Kendel Sibiski Ehrlich, a former assistant public defender and assistant state’s attorney. The Ehrlichs are the proud parents of two sons, Drew and Joshua.
