Bullying in the K-8 School
Therrien, Lindsay
Online Submission
Through my own experiences as a child and now as a teacher, I strongly believe in helping children of any age build positive relationships. In my childhood experiences, I did not witness the extent of bullying behavior that is going on today. I believe that bullying is getting worse and worse. My research explored the frequency of bullying in a kindergarten through eighth grade school in Central New York. It also explored how staff, students, and their parents felt about bullying and offers suggestions and strategies to help decrease the level of bullying that occurs. A sample of 27 staff members, 133 students, and 133 parents were included in this study and data collection consisted of quantitative and qualitative information through the use of questionnaires and observations. It is clear that there is a high level of bullying that occurs throughout the school day and this research supports the concern people have for the welfare of school children. Eight appendixes include: (1) Consent Form for Administrator Permission; (2) Consent Form for Staff Participation; (3) Consent Form for Parent Participation; (4) Parent Consent Form for Student Participation; (5) Middle School Student Consent Form; (6) Staff Questionnaire for Full and Part Time Teachers/Staff; (7) Parent Questionnaire; and (8) Student Questionnaire for Grades K-8.
