Evidence Based Solutions

School-based bullying prevention programs decrease bullying by up to 25% (McCallion & Feder, 2013).  Additionally, students reported that the most helpful things teachers can do are:  listen to the student, check in with them afterwards to see if the bullying stopped, and give the student advice (Davis & Nixon, 2010). Furthermore, involving law enforcement officials, faith organizations, community action groups, and other visible members of the community helps school officials and parents to address the bigger issues of disrespect, bias, and violence that can contribute to bullying issues in schools (StopBullying.gov, 2016; Swearer, Wang, Collins, Strawhun, & Fluke, 2014 ).
