I like this article because it talks about something that is often overlooked. Teachers and other adults in schools are just as likely to be the bullies as kids. This article explains some of the reasoning behind why adults bully and how to handle it.

After watching the movie Bully I thought this would be a good article because of the problems we saw happening on the bus. It's such a hard place to control. This article talks about the dangers of bullying on the bus and what can be done about it.
Ashli Meginnis's curator insight, October 23, 2013 6:31 PM

Reading this article made me think about my own school bus days. I was never personally bullied but did, however, witness other students being bullied on a few accounts. It is very saddening to know that bullying runs so rampant through our schools as well as on the school bus. Reading this article definitely confirmed my perspective on bullying. This content included in this article greatly reinforced my views on bullying. I believe there is a lot that needs to be done in order to put an end to this issue. One of the suggestions in the article was to add a bus monitor to the school buses. Having a moniter would help to ensure the bus drivers arrive to their destinations safely while also keeping the bullying on the bus under control. I think that this would be a great idea in order to hopefully slow down or even stop the occurrence of bullying on buses. If the bullying on school buses can stop, then maybe the occurrence of bullying in our schools will diminish.

This article is good because it says the definition of bullying is as follows: The test, the judge wrote is, whether the conduct is "sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates a hostile environment," which the school does not correct and so "deprives a student of substantial educational opportunities." The victim need only show that the bullying is likely to affect the student's opportunity for an appropriate education.

In this article the main focus is on the research backing the idea that violence at home leads to kids becoming bullies or being bullied. Surprisingly the larger precent was the kids being bullied.

In this article they discuss the research being done on bullying and how it's been blown out of proportion. They back research that says narrowing down on the hotspots will reduce the amount of bullying. They also give information on legisaltion and school safety procedures.
Rachel Solomon's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:55 PM
I really like this article because it talks about how they believe that "bullying should be, and typically already is addressed in school student behavior codes." I completely agree with this, and I know that it was addressed in my high school's code of conduct. Bullying is such a hot topic right now, especially with all of the new technology and cyber-bullying, and it definitely needs to be addressed because it really affects all of the students inside and outside of the classroom.

In this article it said that 24% of high school and middle school students had been bullied through text message. This article is really up to date because kids don't bully as much face-to-face anymore.
Rachel Solomon's curator insight, September 30, 2013 10:15 PM

I think this article is very relevant right now. With the increasing technology, cyber-bullying is becoming even more prevalent inside and outside of our classrooms. Many students claim to be harassed via text messages or social media, and it is important for teachers to be aware of this, and maybe talk about and come up with ways to help prevent it.

This would be a good article to share with parents who kids' are having trouble treating others well. It says that parents shouldn't challenge the school unless the punishment is out of control or they truly believe the kid is being acccussed of something they didn't do.
