JIM TUMAN is an internationally known sociologist, educator, radio and television personality who has spoken to over 2 million people in more than 1,300 schools nationwide, asking them to examine their motives, goals, and feelings, and then make meaningful decisions about their futures.
Young people have never been in more turmoil than they are today. The breakdown of family, at-risk issues, and the inability to get their voices heard are dominating the educational environment.
Jim's approach encompasses all factions that affect a young person's life: their friends, their families, their teachers and educators, and the community at large.

OPEN LETTER TO SCHOOLS:
Over my 30 years as a national speaker, I have watched the age-old concept of bullying
in schools reach new dimensions, in not only true form but Internet as well.
This culminated recently when I received a call from the parents of a six year old who had
taken her own life because the kids were picking on her at school. I remember the feeling
of frustration, hurt and anger when I hung up the phone that day.
I have developed a model for schools and communities to be more pro-active in their
approach to create a safe school environment. I was invited by 14 world leaders to
demonstrate this model.
I believe schools these days can no longer do it alone and they must create an environment
where students feel safe, valued and loved.
Please call me anytime for specifics on my approach. I look forward to working with you.
