Delaware’s Howard High School is designated bully-free zone

    A school year’s worth of effort, assemblies and training sessions culminated yesterday with Delaware’s Howard High School of Technology becoming a designated bully-free zone.

    The effort to become the first school in the First State to be a 100 percent anti-bully zone was achieved when all 834 stories signed a pledge, reports the Wilmington News Journal. But the the real result of the school-wide campaign, students and faculty say, is a more unified school.

    Last month, the school celebrated its one-year anniversary of receiving its Race to the Top education reform assistance funding.
