Monitoring School Bullying: A Review of One School's Program for Assessing and Monitoring the Problem.
Hutchinson, William
A study assessed the levels of bullying behavior at Hale School, an independent boys' day and boarding school in metropolitan Perth, Western Australia. In excess of 900 boys completed a survey instrument in 1994 and 1996. Results indicated that, despite a widely publicized program and the publication of anti-bullying and harassment policies, levels of bullying decreased only slightly in the 2-year life of the program, and that levels of bullying within the classroom increased. Further, despite an increased willingness on the part of students to report bullying to parents, they were less willing to report bullying matters to teachers. Findings reinforce the value of survey questionnaires to gauge the effectiveness of programs such as the anti-bullying interventions. (Contains the survey instrument and a table of data.) (Author/RS)
