Students and staff at Souderton Area High School have good reason to be smiling today. U-S News and World Report released its ranking for “Best High Schools” in the United States. In Pennsylvania, Souderton Area High School was ranked 38th out of 687 schools. The ranking examined math and reading rates and rated how disadvantaged students performed, along with college readiness performance. Souderton Area High School Principal Sam Varano says, the ranking shows how hard students, teachers, parents and the community have worked to earn this recognition.
State Rep. Hopes New Bullying Bill Can Be Signed By June
Bullying and teen suicide were the subjects of recent hearings in Harrisburg. State rep. Paul Clymer says, times have changed, allowing school bullies to mentally torture their victims through social media.
“Continues throughout the day, throughout the week, throughout the weekend, there is never an end to it. A person who is being bullied entrenches and sometimes does not want to tell their parents or their teacher that they are being bullied and kind of keep it to themselves.”
Clymer say, three bills have been introduced. He hopes parts of all three measures can be included in a final bullying bill that can be finished and ready for the Governor’s signature on June 30th. Clymer was a guest Tuesday morning with Darryl Berger on WNPV's New AM-Edition.
