Mental and Emotional Karate

Mental and Emotional Karate | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Most school approaches to bullying are what I call outside-in approaches. Teachers and schools officials basically attempt to appeal to their students' sense of decency and right and wrong. They ask them to not "bully" their fellow classmates. Students are rightfully also made aware of the potentially tragic consequences of "bullying". This is usually backed up with a system of consequences, extra vigilance, and strict enforcement. Schools have an obligation to provide a safe environment for every student. To not do the above would be negligent. However, even when such programs are set up and executed as well as possible, "bullying" often still occurs. Some students often still suffer and struggle quietly. Every once in a while, it ends in a "bullycide" or school shooting.
