Creating an Anti-Bullying Culture in Secondary Schools: Characteristics to Consider When Constructing Appropriate Anti-Bullying Programs
Jones, Joseph R.; Augustine, Sharon Murphy
American Secondary Education, v43 n3 p73-84 Sum 2015
Bullying in schools is a tremendous challenge that many secondary educators are attempting to address within their school environments. However, educators are often unsure of the attributes of an effective anti-bullying program; thus, they tend to create programs on a "trial and error" basis. This article provides an overview of the problem of bullying and discusses six characteristics that should be included in attempting to create an effective anti-bullying program: community involvement, an assessment of the school climate, a consensus on the definition of bullying, student and parental engagement, professional development for faculty and staff, and ongoing program evaluation.
