Hawaii’s 2013 legislature gets underway, one focus for Governor Abercrombie is
early childhood education. That’s raising hopes for a number of non-profit
groups, including one called IM4U. This group is working with UH
Mānoa’s College of Education to fight bullying among young students. Twenty Leeward Coast teachers are testing the nonprofit’s anti-bullying
curriculum….one that founder Jim Mayer says uses music to deliver its message.
has been working with early education professor Ellen Booth Church on a series

Mayer and Ellen Booth Church will spend the next two weeks visiting Hawaii
classrooms, holding seminars and getting feedback about the program. They’ll
end their trip with a workshop next Saturday at the Rotary Peace Forum.
