Schools Combat Bullying

Yan from China

Bullying is becoming a very serious problem in more and more schools, so schools are starting antibullying programs. In these programs, schools are trying to create friendlier relations between students. They try to teach students to respect each other.

They know that bullies usually pick on people who are different, so they are trying to teach students to respect people who are a different race or people who are just different in some way, such as handicapped. I think schools also need to help students who are bystanders to understand that bullying is a problem and they need to help stop it.

Recently I read that thousands of students and teachers in Michigan attended a conference about stopping bullying. They all worked together and discussed ways to stop bullying in their schools.

In my opinion, this is a good way to try to change bullies and get other students to help. These kinds of conferences can help schools and students learn how to deal with bullying. I think more activities like this are needed!

School programs and conferences like these are very important because they can help bullies learn to behave differently and they can also help prevent school violence. We have to insist on doing them because they are good ways to combat bullying.
