Cumberland Superintendent Takes Proactive Approach Toward Hazing

Posted June 30, 2003 2:31 a.m. EDT

— Cumberland County's school superintendent is taking steps to prevent hazing on county school campuses.

Dr. William Harrison has told principals to ban initiation activities for clubs and sports. He says he is concerned students may not always use their best judgement.

Harrison says no specific incident prompted the change. However, charges were filed against students and some parents last month in Chicago after a hazing incident.
