Bullying and harassment can negatively impact academic achievement. According to the research from the Human Rights Campaign and GLSEN students who are harassed or don't feel safe at school are absent more often and have lower GPAs on average than students who do feel safe. But teachers can change this by working to make their classrooms safe and affirming places for all students. Sign the pledge to access resources to make your classroom S.A.F.E.
