EDA5209-AU20 Mean Boys and Girls: A Look at Bullying Prevention in the Schools
Recent studies show that more than three quarters of students surveyed say that they have been bullied, joined in bullying another, or been both victim and perpetrator during their time at school. Many educators are looking for a simple fix, a way to "bullyproof" the school environment, yet research in the field and the experience of experts suggest the problem is much deeper and more entrenched. This course will provide educators with a broad view of the problem, beginning with the standard definitions of bullying and exploring the issue through various subsets, from gender to race. This class will look at legal attempts to control bullying behavior and will explore the impact of bullying both in the school setting and beyond.
