Tucson youth survey reveals bullying statistics from local public schools

The UA Crossroads Collaborative released survey data results on causes of bullying and its impact in Tucson schools during a presentation at Tucson High Magnet School Auditorium on Monday.

In collaboration with Nuestra Voz, a YWCA Racial Justice Program for local youth, Crossroads Collaborative released information on educating and informing youth about bullying, funded by the Ford Foundation.
