School Bullying Outbreak

To create bully-free classrooms, it’s necessary that we educate teachers, students and parents about the prevalence and consequences of it. We all believe a school should be a safe place for the children, a place where they can learn without fear or apprehension.

In accordance with Bullying Prevention Month, and its theme — “The End of Bullying Begins with Me” — we created this infographic, “School Bullying Outbreak,” with facts about the methods, consequences and preventative measures related to bullies and bullied victims in schools. It’s important to fight for bully-free school environments, so please share this infographic as part of your educational outreach and campaigns focused on bullying awareness. Help us spread this important message!

    First I was bullied in school for several years. I know how it hurts to be made fun of and called names. I have grandchildren now they are going to go thru the same thing. Our children and grandchildren and any other family member that are being bullied in school or anywhere need to know that there is good in all people. Its sad that a child is afraid to go to school because someone has said or done somthing to them teachers and parents or family members need to tell our children that when people say things it doesnt always meen the are trying to hurt them, we,they hear things on tv,news and wherever lets try to put more love and good things thats going on in the world instead of all negetive things so they know that there is goo in this World!

    This is wonderful. I’m a youth motivational speaker and I speak a lot at various schools about bullying on and off campus. Unfortunately, graphics like this tend to be the only way to get teenagers to see the destruction they are causing in the lives of those around them. The relationship between bullying and crime is quite possibly the saddest aspect of this whole post. While shocking, it is a clear reminder to educators about what they have the power to prevent.

    I wonder why acts of sexual harassment and sexual violence weren’t noted on this graphic? I did a lot of research on bullying for my MSW program, and the definitions of bullying don’t quite match this graphic. I would like to see multiple graphics published that would pull out these other parts. One piece that is important to remember is that there is not one universally accepted definition of bullying, and according to my research into the subject, adults often misidentify and/or minimize bullying behaviors. Maybe there needs to be a graphic specific to adults? Recent research is suggesting that there may be a pathway between bullying and sexual violence – see Lots more to say and add, but I will leave it at that. I like the use of graphics to communicate complex issues. I just wish that there was more information included. I did especially like the point at the bottom about developing school-wide policies. Studies that I read suggested that the whole-school approach is the most effective and appropriate route.

    Hello – I’m interested in picking up the top graphic for Bullying Awareness month. At the American Graduate Initiative, we are particularly interested in how bullying may factor into a child’s decision to drop out of school. Are your stats about missed days and dropout from the National Education Association? Thanks!

    Interesting that you have this site and seem to focus on K-12. My granddaughter was driven out of USC because of the bullying, harassment, and intimidation she suffered by her USC roommates. The university did nothing about it. Nor did the campus police when incidents were reported to them. She is just now able to talk about the devastating treatment she received.
