PASAP Webinar: Hazing and Youth: Rights, Responsibilities & Tim's Law with Deborah McCoy
Webinar Description: Hazing has dominated headlines in recent months, most recently with the passing of “Tim’s Law”, one of the most stringent in the country. Often not recognized is that hazing is more prevalent in our high-schools than our colleges and universities. Research found that hazing is prevalent among all organized groups in HS. For many students, their first hazing experience is in middle school. This workshop will examine current research, review "Tim's Law" and the responsibility of schools.
