Combating is bullying is Peter Yarrow's current passion. As president and cofounder of Operation Respect, the former Peter, Paul, and Mary star continues his lifelong pursuit of peace by bringing an anti-bullying campaign to schools.
In his presentation Saturday at the 2014 NAESP Annual Conference, Yarrow challenged principals to focus on encouraging love in schools. He also invited principals to sing with him (pictured at left).
