Think About: OUR NATIONAL BULLYING EPIDEMIC
No matter what your age or where you are from, you almost certainly experienced elementary school, middle school or high school bullying at some point in your childhood (either as a victim, a witness, or maybe even the perpetrator). Keep in mind that many of us actually fit into all three of these categories. Bullies have typically been bullied and bullying victims often go on to bully others.
First Response Post: Whatever your perspective or place in the bullying aggression, try to remember how the school addressed the behavior. Answer the following questions:
What was the response of the school administration (teachers, principal, counselors, etc)? Was the response sufficient (did it stop the behavior)? If the response was not sufficient, what more could/should the school administration have done?
