Abstract

How should schools, teachers and others associated with the school respond to bullying?  It is essential that bullying not only be addressed as serious and unacceptable in a school but also that when it occurs that it is handled immediately.  When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. There are simple steps adults can take to stop bullying on the spot and keep kids safe. This issues of NASET’s Bullying of Children series will focus on school response to bullying. It will lay out step-by-step approaches to addressing bullying in schools and point out what to do and not to do in various situation.
