By now, you've read the headlines: School bullying can get out of control, leading to homicides, suicides and devastated families.

Colorado Springs School District 11, working alongside the Pikes Peak Library District and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, will host a discussion on April 29 to discuss different kinds of bullying and its consequences. It should be a great resource for anyone who cares about kids.

Here are the details:

Colorado Springs School District 11, Pikes Peak Library District, and the
Fine Arts Center team up to examine the many facets of bullying

On Tuesday, April 29, 7:00-8:30 p.m., at the East Library, 5550 N.
