Bedford school survey asks direct questions
The shorter version — the Developmental Assets profile — asked students such questions as if they say no to things that could hurt them, their attitudes about school, homework and learning, solving conflicts without hurting someone, feeling safe at home and at school, telling the truth, and if they have parents who listen.
While the surveys may have caused some controversy, Wolf said the results help the district and the Coalition for Bedford Youth, a nonprofit organization that promotes healthy behaviors, identify issues challenging Bedford students.
"Many parents feel our kids are safer in Bedford and compared to some communities they are, but our students are not immune to the real world," said Wolf. "There's a lot of opportunity for the district. I'll be interested to see what the results show."
