Description

Bullying has been in the global spotlight in recent years due to an increase in the prevalence of reported situations in schools (Kennedy, Russom, Kevorkian, 2012). The current study examines this increase of situations, specifically focusing on grades 6-12. More schools are beginning to recognize the need for successful bullying prevention programs, and this study aims to compile successful strategies that schools can utilize to reduce bullying situations. This research recognizes two main types of strategies, student based and faculty and staff based programs. It has been found that a combination of different strategies, which include participation of students and faculty and staff, as well as successful and well-planned implementation of a prevention program, may help reduce bullying situations. This information is helpful for schools to utilize when implementing anti-bullying programs.
