Have you witnessed bullying?
While speaking at a school recently, I asked more than 400 students packed into a gym if they'd ever been bullied.  I'd say about 60-70 percent of them raised their hands.

There are a lot of different kinds of bullying:  physical, verbal, cyber-bullying...  We don't mean joking with your friends or the occasional insult - bullying goes beyond that.  And we'd like to get your ideas on how it can be stopped.

Milestone or Mistake?

What do you think of President Obama's health reform legislation?

Last night, when the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Senate's health reform bill, President Obama's top priority for the country was headed to his desk to become law.  (He's scheduled to sign it on Tuesday.)

There's still a package of changes to the deal that may or may not pass the Senate.  But what is certain is that an $875 billion overhaul of the nation's health care system - something that is said to impact every American - will take effect.

What do you think about it?

On the List

Do you support or oppose the idea of an "F list"?

It started with an "F list," posted in a school hallway, showing the names of middle school students who were failing a class and ineligible to go to a school dance.  Some parents thought it was a violation of their students' privacy, but the principal hoped it would motivate students to get their grades up and get off the list.

The outcome was mixed.  The list did seem to be effective; the principal estimated that in a short period of time, half of the students on the list took action to get off of it by turning in assignments and upping their grades.  But after getting complaints, the principal changed his mind, said he regretted posting the list, and took it down.

So what do you think:  Would a list like this at your school do more good, more harm, or have another mixed outcome?

What Does Your School Need Most?

You've heard over and over that money is tight; funding is hard to get; school systems nationwide are trying to figure out how to make ends meet.  And you've probably got something in mind that could really help your school get through hard times. 

So tell us what it is.  Could be something that helps your overall education; could be something that helps your team or your band or your test scores.  What's the most valuable thing you can think of that would make your school better?

Creative Solutions

HUNDREDS of you have talked to us this month about how the recession is affecting your schools - and we can see from our Quick Poll that many of your schools have been hit.

Now, we're looking for your ideas on how to solve the problem.  Some of you have supported four-day school weeks; others have discussed fundraisers to help keep school programs in place.  What other ideas do you have to help schools succeed when money is scarce?

Tough Decisions

Has the recession affected your school?

You've been sending us some really interesting comments on how the recession's affecting your school.  Administrators and school offiicals have tough calls to make every day about where they can save.  So this time, we want you to play that role:

Let's say you're in charge of a school system that has less money this year than last year.  What would you cut?  What would you save?

Stepping Controversy

A national stepping competition has stepped up a nationwide controversy.  The original outcome was described by some as "cultural theft," while others said, "Stepping is for everybody."  (You can see the report from Tuesday's show by clicking here.)

The organizers later said a "scoring discrepancy" resulted in two winning teams.  But because opinions on this story have been so strong, we're interested to see what you think.

Selfless Sacrifice

...a pretty accurate way to describe a California woman's decision to give up her job so that one of her coworkers could stay employed.

If you have a cool story of something that someone has sacrificed to get through this recession, we'd love to hear about it!
