Bullying runs rampant in our schools, especially for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students.

That's why Timothy Johnson, founder and CEO of the Directions for Life Institute held a five-hour seminar for teachers Friday at the Salvation Army's Kroc Corps Community Center in Ashland.

Johnson says LGBT students face a harsher form of bullying, and school officials are often slow in stopping it.  

 The discussion included the many derogitory words used to taunt gay and lesbian children, and how to recognize and respond to their bullying.

This is the first of what Johnson hopes will become a series of seminars, and he encourages schools, churches, and other organizations to invite him to speak.
