For Immediate Release: Jan. 25, 2018
BLOOMSBURG— The McDowell Institute will continue the College of Education Movie Night with a showing of BULLY on Sunday, Feb. 11, from 7 to 9 p.m. in Kehr Union Building multi-purpose room B.
BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, follows five children who are a part of the 13 million American children experiencing bullying in schools every year. The film provides five different perspectives of America’s bullying dilemma. It is described by critics as “hard-hitting” and “heartbreaking.”
The COE Movie Night was created to provide insight to education majors about issues in the education system that are sometimes not addressed in the classroom. It began in the fall 2017 semester with the showing of Paper Tigers, an award winning film that touched on the issue of poverty, violence and disease on families and introduced a school’s approach to the issue based on treatment and understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences and associated trauma-informed practices.
All College of Education majors are highly encouraged to attend the COE Movie Night and the event is open to the BU community.
Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 9,600 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
