Jablonski, Erica; Middleton, Michael J.; Abrams, Eleanor Diane; Koper, Marlena; Kirsch, Catalina C. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017

Hazeltine, Brian C.; Hernandez, David A. – Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2015

Yet understanding the extent and nature of bullying in Christian schools may lead to a better…
