Bullying: A Concern for Survival
Green, Gregory
Education, v128 n2 p333-336 Dec 2007
Recently, much attention has been placed on the issue of bullying in schools, both in the United States and in foreign countries. Countries like Norway, Sweden, Japan, and Australia have been at the center of attention on issues related to bullying. It is generally believed that incidences of bullying are quite common among middle school students because many of these students must make swift and sometimes many transitions before entering high school. These coupled with hormonal changes during puberty can result in undesirable negative behaviors. Acts of violence through bullying do not start with murder or rape. Such acts are often observed in the form of insults, put downs, threats, and general neglect. This article discusses the benefits of intervention and strategies on preventing bullying in schools.
