There is a huge problem with bullying in this country. It is something that needs to be addressed because there are kids that are killing themselves over it. I know because I was bullied relentlessly during my time in school and I seriously contemplated ending it all.
Now some of these discussions listed in the college's program are going too far in the other direction, but the question that has to be asked is "what are the other coursed being talked about in this event." I think that there does need to be an open, and frank, discussion about bullying and how to stop it and if a college, or some other school, wants to host such a discussion then that should be a good thing.
