Students across the Commonwealth are being urged to not use hurtful words. This week is National No Name-Calling Week.
It was inspired by the book “The Misfits,” which focuses on four best friends trying to survive middle school taunting.
In one Kentucky classroom, students were given a paper cut-out of a person to cover in bad names. The class then ripped the paper cut-outs up and talked about the importance of being nice.
Organizers of the week hope to launch an on-going dialog and eliminate name-calling in communities.
