“It’s Not Okay – At Any Age” Has New Teachers Talking
And that is exactly what the video that targets bullying and disrespect in the workplace is supposed to do. A group of 195 new Fort Worth ISD teachers became the first to see “It’s Not Okay – At Any Age.” They used words such as “thought-provoking,” “awesome” and “eye-opening” to describe the video and the discussion that followed. You have likely seen previews of “It’s Not Okay – At Any Age” on our website the past few weeks.

“It’s Not Okay – At Any Age” is a new addition to the Fort Worth ISD Human Capital Management Department’s new employee training. But plans are in the works for every employee to view and discuss it as the District expands the “It’s Not Okay” (INOK) anti-bullying campaign.
Fort Worth City Councilmember Joel Burns and Fort Worth ISD middle school student Mia Cruz host the video. It stars students, staff and actors from Fort Worth’s community theaters. The video takes you through a day at school – it could be any school in any district – where adult after adult behaves badly. Then we hit the rewind button and give these same adults another chance – to treat co-workers and students with respect.
“The video clearly made an impression on those attending the New Teacher Academy,” said Cliff Mayer, Fort Worth ISD’s Director of Induction, Development and Retention. “A rich discussion followed which should help move the INOK initiative forward.”
