Abstract

Bullying has reached near-epidemic proportions in today's schools, but there is little agreement among educators about what to do about it. This study investigated how teachers and principals defined, viewed, and handled bullying within their classrooms or school settings. After interviewing principals and teachers from a variety of schools, it was confirmed that there is no consensus regarding how to address bullying, though a wide range of strategies and methods have been attempted to prevent it from proliferating. It does appear that bullying is less of a problem in schools that have clear, well-defined, and easily implemented policies for dealing with bullying. The researcher recommends that schools from a variety of settings work together to develop a coherent program for addressing this serious and growing problem.
