Bullying Prevention in Public Schools

NEA regards bullying as a serious issue that can no longer be dismissed as a childhood rite of passage. This policy brief examines the impact of bullying on America’s students and answers key questions: What constitutes bullying behavior and which students are most at risk of being targets? What is the effect of bullying on student achievement, and what is the current policy landscape? The brief provides a range of recommendations for bullying prevention policies and programs and identifies NEA resources to help stakeholders create a healthy school climate and become effective anti-bullying agents.
