10 Strategies to Prevent Bullying in Schools

The classroom is a model of society, an area where students learn how to interact with peers, develop learning, and implement skills that will impact the rest of their lives. Teachers have a unique opportunity to educate and support students in this society. It is important that students feel safe to develop and learn in an environment free of criticism and bullying.

Bullying is defined as “.Aggressive behavior that is intentional, repeated over time, and involves an imbalance of power or strength. A child who is being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself.”

In an effort to prevent bullying, here are ten strategies:

* Focus on the environment

* Assess bullying at the school

* Obtain staff and parent buy-in

* Group coordination

* Training for staff in prevention

* Establish and enforce school rules and policies

* Increase adult supervision in “hot spots”

* Intervene consistently and appropriately

* Devote class time to prevention

* Continued efforts

Bullying must be addressed and stopped.  Hopefully, these 10 strategies are helpful.
