Thirty percent of U.S. students in grades six through ten are involved in moderate or frequent bullying — as bullies, as victims, or as both — according to the results of the first national survey on this subject by the National Institutes of Health.

Bullying, the deliberate and repeated affliction of abuse that can take many forms, including physical, verbal and even cyber, is a severe school violence problem that impacts every grade level.

Eliminating bullying can be achieved training staff to identify signs of victimization, so they can determine who is involved in bullying; intervene to stop bullying and consult privately with the parties involved; and, notify parents and gain their input to resolve the situations.

By training staff and involving parents, schools can stop bullying, which prevents bullies from becoming criminals and protects victims, who suffer from lower esteem and frequently miss school.
