McDowell Institute Continues COE Movie Night for 2018 Spring Semester

For Immediate Release: Feb. 5, 2018

BLOOMSBURG— The Bloomsburg University McDowell Institute for Teacher Excellence in Positive Behavior Support will continue the College of Education Movie Night with a screening of the documentary “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. Critics describe the film 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 not addressed in the classroom. Movie Night began last fall with the screening 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.

The event is free and open to the 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.
