“Bullying is currently a serious and prevalent problem in our schools. Its negative effects are not limited to individual children who bully or those who are victimized by peers. Bullying is a systemic social problem that impacts the entire school, and has far reaching implications for children’s social and emotional adjustment.” (Interventions for Academic and Behavior Problems, Snell et al., 351)
Honolulu’s Washington Middle School principal, Michael Harano said students are advised at the beginning of every school year about consequences for inappropriate behavior, such as bullying, but incidents still occur. He admits that if people are really interested in trying to get no bullying to occur in schools, it needs to be linked to parent training.
A teacher, who was a victim of bullying, asked “Where are the preventive measures? Where are the programs? And where are the trainings?” She said she left teaching after a few years because some of her students verbally and physically harassed her.
