This article talks about how violence in our schools has become an increasing problem over the past decades. Peer mediation is "a form of dispute resolution in which students' peers simply help them communicate to fix their own problems," says the article. I think peer mediation is a really great idea to stop bullying. Kids are sick and tired of listening to their parents, teachers, guidance counselors, etc. I think it is much more effective to have someone your own age help you work out a disagreement. I also feel that kids care much more about how their peers view them rather than how adults view them, so I think peer mediation could be a very effective tool is helping with bullying issues.

I think this article is really interesting. It shows that there is a new app that alows students to anonymously report bullying to school administrators. I think this is great, and I would think that students would be way more likely to report things if it could be done anonymously. No one wants to be a tattletale, so I think this app is a great invention, and could really be a helpful tool to prevent and stop bullying.
