A good point that this article brings up is that bullying will continue until all schools make a movement to end it. It also says that the stop to this epidemic begins with the adults.

9/10 students have been bullied and 6/10 students have bullied this past year. A shocking approach that one psychologist is taking is that students need to accept the fact that bullying is a part of life and just deal with it... I'm not so sure about this...

A shocking statistic that the article brings up is that 1 in 4 kids are bullied in school and 1 in 2 are bullied outside of school.

I chose this article because it intrigued me saying bullying is becoming an epidemic.  I hope educators and administrators will help to stop bullying within schools.

This is a great review on the documentary that we saw last week. I am glad to know that I am not the only one who found some of the "solutions" ridiculous.

This article brings awareness to a type of bullying you may have never thought of, preschool bullying. It talks about how many forget about the most vulnerable age group when bullying begins.

Students Demand Stronger Bullying Laws At The Capitol

Students Demand Stronger Bullying Laws At The Capitol | school bullying | Scoop.it

Students against bullying rallied at the Capitol Saturday, demanding tougher laws against bullying.  It's the students who are taking the stand!  It's the students who are enforcing the law!  It's the students who are trying to make thier schools a better place!  Again, it's THE STUDENTS dressed in orange! 

The idea for the rally started with a public policy class at Mounds Park Academy. Four seniors formed a group called Students Demanding Change, and they partnered with the PACER Center, a Minnesota-based anti-bully organization, to hold the rally.

“The students’ voice isn’t really heard on the issue of bullying prevention. It’s usually just legislators talking about it. We wanted to have our voice out there, because it is a student issue.”

Every day, more than 160,000 kids miss school fearing an attack or intimidation by other students, according to the PACER Center.

It takes courage to rally at the Capitol.  It takes courage to stand up and be heard.  It takes courage to go to school.  Student's shouldn't feel scared or intimidated while at school. 

As a teac'her, it's good to back your students on some causes and this cause on taking a stand on bullying would be one of the better choices you can make. 

With bullying becoming such a topic on the hot stove, it's time to cool things off.

I agree it is time to act--not to ignore the concerns of these students which are legitimate, and if anything understate the problem of bullying--I love this though--students taking action to control their world

I love that students are taking a stand against bullying. Students are the ones effected by it so they should have a voice against it!

I like the idea of encouraging your children at a young age to tell you about what is going on at school. This will help you be able to notice changes in your child and recognize bullying as soon as it begins.

The article makes a good point that disciplining bullies may create a more hostile environment and can push the bullies to take their cruelty elsewhere, such as the internet.

I like that the article's author realizes that kids will be kids but teasing becomes bullying when it is repetitive or when there is a conscious effort to hurt another child, wether that be emotionally or physically.
