Simply the Best Public Relations (www.simplythebestpublicrelations.com) has been appointed PR firm of record to promote that The Bullying Academy is now available to elementary and middle schools free of charge for the 2012-2013 school year, thanks to Walser Law Firm in Boca Raton.

The Bullying Academy has been used successfully in over 1,000 schools nationwide and it has become the leading online educational resource for schools to teach kids about bullying and cyberbullying.

Thomas Walser, founder and managing partner of Walser Law Firm (www.walserlaw.com), “As a father and an active member of the education community, I’ve seen firsthand the severe effects that bullying has on adolescents. The Bullying Academy is a wonderful and engaging solution to a widespread and pressing dilemma. Walser Law is proud to have the opportunity to assist schools in Palm Beach County with enacting The Bullying Academy free of charge for the 2012-2013 school year, and we’re delighted to enlist Simply the Best PR to get the word out.”

According to Kim Morgan, President of Simply the Best PR, “We will aggressively promote Mr. Walser’s generous offer to absorb the cost for any elementary and middle school in the county to implement The Bullying Academy, an extremely successful school program that teaches kids about bullying.”
