Bullying: A School Responds
Fidler, Coletta
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v5 n2 p24-27 Spr 2004
Bullying has gone on in schools for decades. Defined as "browbeating" or being "habitually cruel to others who are weaker," bullying can cause physiological and psychological injuries that last a lifetime. Unchecked, this behavior can lead the bully to drug and gang cultures and eventually prison. It can drive the victim to depression and suicidal thoughts. At the very least, bullying interferes with the social, emotional, and academic progress of both the victim and the bully. Counselors and teachers often are unaware of bullying going on because students hesitate to report it. This article describes the workshop which evolved as part of a comprehensive plan for preventing bullying at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf.
