Every student whether they are black, white, hispanic, asian, bisexual, homosexual etc. should feel protected in our school system. Unfortunately this is not the case for many of our children.The statistics are alarming and it will only get worse if people do not take a stand. No child should be subjected to cruelty from their peers and every child should feel safe in school. Every school in the America should have a zero tolerance policy in place and implement programs to bring anti-bullying awareness.
Please review the following statistics from www.martialartsforpeace.com :
Surveys Show That 77% of students are bullied mentally, verbally, & physically.
Every school needs to implement anti bullying programs into the school system. Everyone needs to be educated on this subject. The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is one of the most effective anti bullying programs. Bullying is no longer a 'rite of passage' and it is time for everyone to take a stand.
