As Chicago's temperatures dropped to record lows again this week, its college students wanted to know (and looked to social media for an answer): Do we have to go to school today? And for the most part, the answer was yes, you do. That response inspired a controversial Twitter firestorm from some students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, after students received an email Sunday telling them to bundle up for Monday's classes.

There are a lot of different ways to handle an encounter with a school bully on the playground. Some kids might run away to tell a teacher about what happened. Some might tell the bully off in the moment or try to fight back. Others might cry and wait to tell their parents about it later. Last year, when a kid ran up to 9-year-old Dylan Kaufmann and punched him in the stomach, the then-3rd- grader didn't do any of those things. Instead, during an indoor recess, he and his friends devised a plan to end bullying at their school.
