About this Article

Changing a culture of hazing in schools takes more than the mere adoption of anti-bullying policies. It requires making the school environment not just physically, but emotionally safer, according to a consultant hired by Maine Township High School District 207 in the wake of a hazing scandal. "We've got to rely on the character and the ethics of our children. Policies don't go into bathrooms, Facebook."
