This is a very good article because apart from having a lot of information, it has lots of pictures and statistics.  Also, it uses many simple to understand  pictures and charts.  If you need numbers in bullying, this article is just what you need.

We use Olweus Bullying Prevention program in our region. It is a school and district wide effort to end bullying, promote healthy peer relationships, and to help students deal with bullying. The program teaches students through frequent class meetings. Videos and discussions are used to help students problem solve through those tough situations they encounter at school. Elementary students make pledges to their school communities in regards to not watching or letting bullying happen, treating others nicely, not talking badly about others, etc. The conversations are a bit more in depth at the middle and high school levels. The goal is to provide children of all ages with  tools and strategies to help them deal with bullying, whether they are being bullied or are witnessing it. In our schools, we have yet to survey students since implementation so the impact of the program is yet to be foreseen. What is clear, is that schools must do something to proactively prevent bullying. Consequences for bullying should be clearly stated in handbooks with parents and students understanding the seriousness.

although this is not a "traditional" article, it does touch base on an important topic; bullying. one in four kids are bullied every month in the US. this article contains various statistics about bullying such as prevention, consequences, methods of bullying, and so on. this gives insight on how to notice bullying and how to tackle it. statistics show that "35.5% of students believe schools can help prevent bullying". The author stood true to its title and gave tips on how to battle bullying as a teacher, Things to remind students to do when they are around bullies… Speak up against bullying. Say something like, “stop it.” Walk away. Act like you do not care, even if you really do. Tell an adult you trust. They may have ideas about what you can do. Stick together. Staying with a group might help." Sometimes it is hard to speak to someone about bullying with an adult but if teachers made themselves "friendlier" and more open, I'm sure more and more kids would open up about their struggles in school.

This statistics is startling! The age of children who are accessing online media is steadily dropping. Isn't it high time we did something about not allowing children unsupervised access to the internet? Have we perhaps opened a Pandora's box by relying too much on online resources?

This article provides some statistical information. 

Shelby Hughes's curator insight, November 17, 2014 11:25 AM

Either we have all experienced online bullying or have seen our peers being attacked by an online bully. Did you say anything when you saw a cruel injustice? Did anyone stand up for you? Each and everyday there is a post or tweet directed to hurt someone; a passive-aggressive killer. 

The bystanders in this situation are those who see the abuse and choose to scroll passed it and not give aid to the individual (Myers, 2014) Studies show that the chances of the bystander effect decrease in a dangerous situation (Fischer, P., Krueger, J. I., Greitemeyer, T., Vogrincic, C., Kastenmüller, A., Frey, D., & ... Kainbacher, M. (2011). The bystander-effect: A meta-analytic review on bystander intervention in dangerous and non-dangerous emergencies. Psychological Bulletin, 137(4), 517-537. doi:10.1037/a0023304). It is suggested that it may be explained with the "Arousal- Cost Reward Model" Fischer, at el. 2011). So in a situation that there is no direct danger the chances of aid are diminished (Fischer at el. 2011). 

Online bullying is not a clearly recognized as a dangerous situation and it can therefor be inferred that there is a higher chance that the bystander effect will take place (Myers, 2014). This is in fact a dangerous situation as there is a higher rate of suicide and absence from school from those affected by online bullying (Holt, 2014). 

Will we simply stand by as others are being attacked by online bullying?

This colorful infographic displays useful information about student bullying, while providing astonishing current U.S. stats. This chart taught me more about bullying in classrooms in a few minutes than I've learned in the past few months! The fact that every seven minutes a child is bullied is a statistic I can't and won't ignore.

Soren Andrews's curator insight, May 12, 2014 8:51 AM

I think this a a great for percents and it has much of the information that you need in order to make a great persuasive essay. It tells you what bullying does and which ways they can bully you. It says who are the ones being bullied and how many people in the world do something about it.

A must read!  This was very interesting to read.

jhenehan's curator insight, October 13, 2013 12:38 PM

This was a great visual about statistics of bullying. 

-28% of students ages 12-18 were bullied in 2008/2009 school year.

-Different forms of bullying. Made fun of, rumors, pushing, threatening, cyberbullying, excluded, forced, and even property destroyed. 

-It mentions how people who are bullied are more liekly to have deppression symptoms, harm themselves, and suicidal thoughts. 

- It gives you a number to call if you think someone may need help.

-Also, many people are too scared to speak out because of threats, retaliation, and others reactions to them. 

-The article mentions to be more than just a bystander. 

 

 

I personally feel that I learned a lot from this. It is something that I can use as a future educator. It made me aware of the bullying statistics and how important it is for parents to also be involved and to be aware of the growing problems.

Bullying can be a traumatic experience which can have an effect on the quality of life we lead as adults. This is an important reason why we need to tackle bullying before it takes up uglier tones.
