Almost everything we have seen, read, or heard regarding education in Arizona over the past few months has been negative and sometimes, downright depressing. We are also often treated to dire predictions and hand-wringing descriptions of today’s kids and teenagers. In fact, such things are only a very small part of the picture. I was a professional educator at the secondary level for 39 years before retiring to Arizona, and am now on the Arizona Regional Board of Directors for the Anti-Defamation League. A very special occurrence took place last month that brought both of these parts of me together.  

On Friday, April 17, Dobson High School held its annual “Day of Awareness” event at the school, which consisted of workshops and presentations organized by Dobson’s ADL program advisers, teachers Kim Klett and Shannon Carbone, and facilitated by the student members of the ADL “Peer Training” and ADL “No Place for Hate” clubs. The goal of the clubs is making their school a safer, kinder place, and reducing hatred, bias, prejudice and bullying by increasing awareness among the student body.
