There are many potential distractions in a school setting, but fear of bullying is one that is simply unacceptable. At the same time, nearly every school in the United Sates has this problem and many schools are not being effective in the efforts to stop the growing epidemic of bullying. The classroom is the educator’s domain and in this location, there is a clear responsibility for teachers to be able to recognize and address any bullying behavior that is taking place. Failure to do so creates an environment that not only jeopardizes productivity of the students, but can also be a real physical or emotional danger.

The reason that many educators choose not to become involved in a bullying situation is not because they don’t care, but rather that they are not adequately trained to deal with the problem. Initiating a school-wide prevention program with training for educators will take the lack of preparation out of the equation and give teachers the knowledge they need to respond properly. Any educator or school that would like to learn how to regain control of their classrooms and put an end to bullying is invited to contact BARE to learn more about our services and how we can help.
