The New York State Educational Conference Board held its fourth annual policy conference this December. This year's theme was "21st Century Bullying and its Implications on Schools," offering information and solutions to help school districts create a safer learning environment for all. School officials, parents and education organizations convened to discuss and share preventative measures and successful programming to end bullying in schools. The Educational Conference Board is a coalition of the five largest education organizations in the state working vigorously with parents, teachers, school administrators and school board members to engage students in learning and to increase the quality of education in New York.
