Bullying and the power of peers
What teachers can do:
- Ask students about bullying. Survey students regularly.
- Ask students about their relationships. Know your students well, who they get on with and who they don't get on with.
- Build democratic classroom and school climates. Identify and grow student leaders who can make a stand against bullying.
- Be an informed consumer of anti-bullying curricula. There is no silver bullet.
- Remember that bullying is also a problem of values.
