Bullying: It can be unlearned
Evidence-based Anti-bullying Program for 4th Through 8th Grade Students
The web-based interactive anti-bullying program was created to help students and educators recognize the dangers of bullying, including cyberbullying. Our primary emphasis is to inform students of preventative measures related to bullying as well as to develop effective communication strategies. The program generates data, which can be compared by class, school, or district in an effort to monitor effectiveness of bullying prevention education.
Bullying is a huge challenge in the South Bronx. There is a code of silence in the community that makes it difficult to effectively intervene. Students don't want to be accused of "snitching" and as a result many students suffer in silence. If we don't know that something is happening it is difficult to prevent it from escalating.
These materials could literally save the lives of children. We have students who have contemplated suicide and never told anyone that they were being persecuted until it was almost too late! You will help us empower students to confront bullying in a non-threatening manner.
