Responding to a Major Problem of Adolescent Intolerance: Bullying. Peace Education Miniprints No. 82.
Reardon, Betty A.
In this article the phenomenon of bullying is discussed, using a model for detecting and monitoring cases of bullying used by Japanese teachers. Bullying is viewed as symptomatic of a deeper problem, lack of respect for the dignity and integrity of others. Such respect is a central value in a culture of peace. Bullying is a major threat to tolerance in the schools and a moral challenge to educators. At the same time bullying cases also present an opportunity for teaching moral development, as well as personal and social responsibility. Sections include: "Behavioral Indicators of Intolerance,""Victim's Behaviour at School,""Social Circumstances of the Victim at School,""Physical Appearance and Home Behaviour of a Victim," and "'V' Presention of School Bullying."
