Matt Langdon: Ditching Anti-Bullying Programs to Build Pro-Hero Schools

Why does Matt Langdon, founder of the Hero Construction Company, cringe every time he sees an anti-bullying sign in a school? Why does he think anti-bullying programs should be ditched in favor of cultivating heroes? In his TEDx talk, Matt shares his 4 reasons for cringing and his vision for a school of heroes. He says:

"If you build a school of heroes, you're not going to deal with kids vandalizing the toilets, you're not doing to deal with kids beating each other up, you're not going to deal with people insulting each other or calling people names or sending naked texts of each other. And that stuff is going to just disappear, because the heroes take care of it themselves."
