Schools are the most well-known settings for bullying. This is the place where students learn and socialize for most of the day. A school is a place meant to feel safe, not afraid. However, studies have shown us this is not the case. More and more students are reluctant to come to school. Why? Their peers may criticize them and abuse of them both verbally and physically. Bullying is more serious than most think. Many people just think it’s a simple hoax that was taken too far but this simple joke can lead to indelible emotional and physical scar that could hunt students for life eventually lowering their self-esteems and even ruining their lives. Schools and teachers have failed tremendously at stopping this.
What if you were terrified to go to your school every day? 160,000 students miss school everyday because they get bullied and are scared of what will happen (“Bullying Statistics”). Bullying has been a major problem in schools for too long. Students should not be scared to go to a place that is supposed to be safe and where they can express themselves. Students that bully never get the punishment they deserve which causes them to continue to act. When you go to school, you should know that if you are getting treated in a horrific way, the people who were treating you that way will get punished. Students who bully should be suspended from school.
The purpose of this study is to identify the most prevalent forms of bullying on a high school campus and identify which strategies are most effective to prevent or respond to bullying. The study will also identify the most effective strategies to improve student achievement and attendance for those students who have experienced bullying. Students must feel safe to learn. Students who are bullied have a propensity to avoid the bullies; therefore, they choose not to attend school. Poor attendance often will result in poor grades and even dropping out of school.
According to students, schools respond inadequately, if at all, to reported incidents of bullying. When Frank Barone, principal of Amsterdam High School in Amsterdam, New York, asked hundreds of eighth graders if they had ever been bullied, more than half (58.8 percent) responded in the affirmative. Yet when he asked their teachers how many students had been bullied, they put the figure at 16 percent. Clearly, adults don't recognize the extent of bullying that children face every day. This shows that administration can easily miss important warning signs that point to school violence.
When I first moved to Canada, I became a victim of this threat known as bullying. In grade 4, in 2008, I had first come to Canada, from India. I didn’t know how to speak English, and so, people used this as an excuse to pick on me. One kid whole bullied me a lot was Ravi. He used to make fun of me because I couldn’t talk to others and told other that I was anti-social. Also, he would take any good lunch I had, he would make fun of me when playing games, and even spread false rumours. I first kept my bullying problems hidden from my parents, but gradually, as things got worse, I told them. They talked to our teacher, Mr. Douglas. Mr. Douglas talked to Ravi, and he stopped bullying me. Even though he isn’t the friendliest person today, he doesn’t
As an elementary school student, I did not have many friends. I had not been with my classmates since preschool, so I was an outsider from the start. Being so young and ignorant, I did not really see that I was bullied, disliked, and unwanted, however, as I became more mature I realized that these people I would spend 8 years of my life with looked for anything to nitpick, from my rupunzelesque hair to my love for drawing. Come middle school, I finally and completely understood the animosity, and still sat alone at lunch, worked alone in class, replied with silence to their words, and when I was even assaulted I did nothing more but shrug it off and try to ignore it. However, when I would come home in the evenings I would retreat to my bedroom where it would all hit me at once. The anguish led to rivers of tears, insomnia, low grades, a refusal to leave my home, and eventually even suicidal tendencies. My drawings became graphic, about suicide, loneliness, and the anger I felt. The school believed I had ADHD, my parents believed it was just a phase, but they were blinded by their own problems at the workplace.
It’s not it’s the bullies that’s the problem. It’s too late for me, and for a lot of kids. Nothing will undo the years we’ve spent questioning what we did wrong. Why we were picked out of all the kids? Because we were different? Because we didn’t look or act like everyone else? Because the people who could still go home to the perfect family, with mom and dad and their siblings. To tell us the people with broken home lives, with our moms gone, our dads left, or if we were adopted, to just get over it. People point out all of our flaws, even the ones we already notice. Even if those flaws keep us up at night, our flaws screaming at us that we’ll never be beautiful, or loved. People yell these things at us all the time that we start to believe it ourselves. So we cry at night wishing that we had the courage to end it. Some of us don’t have the courage, so we cut and burn ourselves, just to feel something. But if a car, or bus was coming at us, or a stranger was going to stab or shoot us. We wouldn’t yell, or run. We would just stand there and let it happen, because they are just doing what we’re to afraid
Step one go to an adult. The adult can put a stop to it before it gets bad. The adult can either do nothing or go to the bully's side. It might not be reliable they can help and it will be easy. If you don't have enough confidence or you are worried go to step 3 then come back. The adult does not even have to be a teacher i could be mom dad mrs. Will grandma. I would go to a teacher first then mom or dad.
Their petty stunts did not last. It quickly escalated from gum on a locker to pushes and shoves in the hallway. They began to use my cousin’s death against me, as some sort of sick insult. I was bullied by mainly one individual for the duration of my sophomore and junior year. Eventually, I began to seek therapy through the persuasion of my family and close friends. Being in therapy has helped me improve drastically as a person and get back on the right track. Unfortunately, my grades for sophomore and junior year suffered as well and are not where I’d like them to be. I know I could have done much better had there been different circumstances. Today, I feel I have overcome what was diagnosed as PTSD and depression. I am in a much better place than I was this time last year and I want to continue my education. Since my experience of having to cope with his untimely death, it has become my dream to graduate college as a registered nurse. I want to help people and save lives. If I could positively impact the life of just one person, everything I've gone through will be worth it. To help others and care for those who need it most will be very fulfilling to

Bullying has been an old age problem since the beginning of time, which is still a problem till this day in age. No matter what stage someone might be in life, there is a possibility that you may have been in the position of a victim, bully, and/or bully-victim? An aggressive behavior of bullying might be seen as an act that begins in early childhood and decreases around late adolescence years, but that isn’t the case. Regrettably, being harassed or tormented by aggressor can continue in a higher institution. Oddly enough, there is a misconception that once you’re in college, bullying cease to exist. Although this notion is understandable since there is this view about college being a place reinvent or find yourself, it’s like a blank slate in your life. You’re a new person, experiencing new thing, and meeting new people. This impression may stemmed from television shows and/or movies showing characters leaving there past behind and embracing the new adventures to come. But that’s not the case, if you were once bullied before; it may happen again. Those same bullies grow up as you and the position may have changed where they are the ones getting bullied or they’re the same tyrant they were before. Bullying does change, it just evolves in different ways. The types of bullying can vary from physical, verbal, cyberbullying, sexual, and prejudicial bullying. While, there are programs to assist people dealing with bullying, it doesn’t completely eliminate the problem.
