Bully Prevention Resources
Department of Public Health Releases Anti-Bullying Guide
Statewide, nearly one in four students reports being bullied at school, and the statistics are even harsher for students who are labeled as being different by their peers. It’s not great news for bullies, either, as 60% of Grade 6 – 9 bullies are convicted of a crime by age 24.
“Bullying is not an inevitable part of growing up, and we need to do more to stop it,” said DPH Commissioner John Auerbach. “No guide alone can change a culture of bullying, but we hope this guide will help by providing administrators, teachers and students with practical advice on what works and what doesn’t work in preventing bullying.
