Project Wisdom Pilot Advisors

Project Wisdom was piloted during the school year 1992-1993. The messages were carefully screened by educators, students, and parents of diverse racial, religious, economic, cultural, and educational backgrounds. The following educators and community members were serving as advisors at the time:

"Students who had been pegged as "bullies" or students who liked to make themselves feel better at another person's expense began to have their actions pointed out to them by OTHER STUDENTS, not just teachers. Positive peer pressure has had a tremendous effect on reducing discipline referrals and made for a more family-like, nurturing environment."
