Nash Says Schools Face Dilemma on Social Issues

Marvin Nash (Doug Randall/TSM)

Local anti-bullying activist Marvin Nash says schools are increasingly facing a dilemma in terms of the traditional mission of educating students versus dealing with social issues such as bullying.

Nash’s comments echo recent remarks by Laramie County School District #1 Superintendent Mark  Stock who said teachers are becoming frustrated in trying  to teach traditional academic subjects while dealing with an increasing number of social issues, including such topics as substance abuse, bullying and domestic violence. Nash says he understands the frustrations, adding concerns about where to find time to fulfill both missions ”make perfect sense” .   But Nash adds using the schools to address such problems also makes sense “because that’s where the kids are”. Nash will be one of the participants in an upcoming webinar on bullying on KGAB and kgab.com on bullying. That webinar is scheduled for May 15 at 6:30 pm.
