Teachers play a vital role in creating a sense of community in school. By making connections with students, you can better recognize instances of bullying and play a role in preventing them.
Bullying is a Common Problem
According to Stomp Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying and cyberbullying program for kids and teens, one out of four students experiences bullying in person.
Over 40% of students have been cyberbullied. That means in a 24-student class, six kids have been bullied face-to-face and at least nine have been harassed online or by text message.
