Impact on Society
Impact on Student
by R. W. Ackley, MBA, Ph.D.
I want to deliver more programs that will demonstrate the importance of educating students about bullying and social skills. I have the passion and drive to deliver strong content to schools; I want to educate teachers and parents about bullying, relational aggression, and cyberbullying. The dissertation and bully prevention program have given me the knowledge to create a change in our communities.
As I work in grammar and middle schools, I see students’ innocence and eagerness to learn; however, I know that bullying can lead to depression, academic failure, misconduct, violence, and suicide. It breaks my heart to know that some students didn’t seek help and that there are resources and solutions. If I can help victims feel empowered and bullies to develop empathy to stop the harassment; I will create change and help stop this violence!
