There is a difference here though: The Edge, a program in which adult volunteers mentor pupils in emotional intelligence.

  Epidemic of Bullying: (“Immense Possibilities”—Southern Oregon Public Television.) Along with their Vice-Principal, two students from Phoenix High School in Jackson County Oregon provide, in their own words, powerful validation of the positive difference The Edge program has made in their school culture.

“Our public TV episode on The Edge stirred an unusual amount of unterest, with viewers contacting us by email and phone about how timely and important they thought the program is. That made us understand that the concern about what's happening to our kids in schools is really broad-based, and that people are intensely ready for bold programs with clear results like The Edge.”—Jeff Golden, Founding Producer, Immense Possibilities
