Bullying and cyberbullying are increasing and pose serious problems in schools. But there are proven ways schools can ensure safety and provide a stress-free learning environment. This kit has everything you need!
Recent data shows that one third of students ages 12 to 18 have been bullied, up from 1 in 10 in the 90’s. In fact, statistics prove that the bullies themselves are also adversely affected with 1 in 4 having a criminal record by the time they are 30 years old.
Evidence-based research also shows the devastating effects of bullying on student achievement. There are significant implications for the the victim, the bully, bystanders, parents and staff dealing with altercations. No student or school is immune to bullying. Bullying affects girls and boys, happens in large and small schools and in urban, suburban and rural areas. It undermines the ability of students to achieve their full potential.
The Education Department (ED) issued two policy memos on bullies to all schools warning of severe consequences, including funding restrictions, if schools don't comply.
