The Institute for University-School Partnership at Yeshiva University presents an array of 
exciting online continuing education webinars for teachers, administrators, support 
coordinators and lay leaders for Fall 2009.

Participation is free. Register at yu.edu/schoolpartnership under Upcoming Events. View 
our complete Fall 2009 Online Continuing Education Program at yu.edu/schoolpartnership.

Five series of sessions were developed in response to the feedback the Institute received 
from administrators, teachers, support coordinators and lay leaders to our Online 
Continuing Education planning survey last June. Each series offers intensive training 
targeted to develop knowledge, understanding and skills of Jewish day school 
professionals in a specific area.  At the same time, individuals may find sessions in more 
than one series to be beneficial to them. The five series are: Leadership, Differentiated 
Instruction, Social-Emotional Skill Building, Enhancing Jewish Studies and Interactive 
Media.

4.	Marshall Memo: Students as Potential Leaders Against Bullying

In this Principal Leadership article, author and Empower Program founder Rosalind 
Wiseman says that students can play a key role in turning around a negative school 
culture – but only if they are taught some principles of ethical leadership. 

She uses the example of a high school in which students were able to trot out the 
ostensible values – tolerance, respect for diversity, proud traditions, caring teachers, 
school spirit – but also reported incidents of derogatory language (That’s so gay. Sk---. 
Don’t be a p----), offensive racial and ethnic jokes, religious intolerance (If you don’t 
believe in Jesus, you’re going straight to hell), and misogyny (Shut up, woman!). In 
addition, students reported that they didn’t fully trust their elected student council 
members to represent school values and stand up to student bullies.

Wiseman suggests several leadership arguments to help students step up to the plate and 
begin to change their school’s culture:

• Redefine loyalty. 
Wiseman says that students need to get to the place where they see that loyalty means 
“standing up to someone to whom they are close and respectfully telling that person when 
he or she is wrong. Loyalty is not backing someone up or saying nothing when he or she 
does something unethical. That’s not being loyal; that’s being manipulated.”

• Differentiate between snitching and reporting. 
Snitching is trying to get someone in trouble. Reporting is meant to fix a problem that’s 
beyond the capacity of the individual to fix, to right a wrong. Sure, there’s the danger 
that a clueless adult may make the situation worse, but Wiseman says we need to help 
students find the adult who can be their best advocate in the situation.

• Practice with real situations. 
Students learn best by discussing actual case studies similar to situations they are likely 
to face. How should they talk to peers in leadership positions who aren’t doing their jobs? 
How can they talk to peers who aren’t taking them seriously?

• Educate adult leaders. 
“Adults in the school community can’t ask students to do work that they aren’t willing to 
do themselves,” says Wiseman. That means exposing them to the same anti-bullying 
training that students get, and urging them to support students as they take on leadership 
roles with their peers. 

But in the end, concludes Wiseman, kids can do some of the heaviest lifting. “Students 
have the potential to be leaders in ways that adults in the community can’t be,” she says. 
“If they receive the training, skills, and resources that they need – and if adults are in the 
background, guiding the student leaders – students have far more power to effect positive 
change than faculty members ever would.”
