New Jersey's "Week of Respect" [Video]

Ridgewood Avenue School's Character Education Committee
This week, New Jersey schools held the first ever "Week of Respect" as mandated by the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights. Schools around the state spent the week teaching about preventing harassment, intimidation, and bullying.

I have to say, I'm impressed at the timing of some our episodes. With so many stories, I'm sure it can't be easy for our executive producer to make segments that we shoot months in advance coincide with current events, especially this season with the switch to a new network. Case in point, this week's episode of Classroom Close-up, NJ kicks off with the "Block the Bully" story we taped at Ridgewood Avenue School earlier this year. Good timing.

You can catch this episode on NJTV in HD this Sunday at 6:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 7:30 PM. And as always, you can watch online.
