Did you know kids with special needs are bullied at three times the rate of other students?

That’s why I’m so pleased to share this important discussion on CNN about the silent epidemic of the bullying of students with special needs. It’s a conversation too often ignored, and one long overdue. Great job by Tim Shriver of Special Olympics and Lauren Potter of Glee and CNN in bringing this to world’s attention.

Special note: Replace the word retard with the word RESPECT. Click here for more on this March 2nd Special Olympics effort.
