What Educators Need to Know about Bullying Behaviors
Graham, Sandra
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n1 p66-69 Sep 2010
Despite the growing body of research on bullying, several myths about it persist. Those myths are that bullies have low self-esteem and are rejected by their peers, getting bullied is a natural part of growing up, victims will always continue to be victims, boys are physical and girls are relational victims and bullies, zero tolerance policies reduce bullying, and bullying involves only a perpetrator and a victim. To combat bullying, teachers should never ignore a bullying incident but should approach them as teachable moments. (Contains 3 online resources.)
