Change Starts with You. Sign Petition. Demand Anti-Bullying Education at Your School

The need for school curricula that teaches students how to stop, handle and report bullying is imperative. If students don’t understand how harmful bullying is and what the consequences of bullying are, it will only continue. Sign now!

Current anti-bullying policies at most schools are ineffective due to a student’s lack of knowledge when it comes to the effects or consequences of bullying. Studies indicate 50% of students feel that bullying can’t be prevented. They have no strategies to deal with it and sadly, 80% of bullying aren’t reported.

Cyberbullying is harder to stop and control. Students, school personnel and parents need to be educated about the harmful effects of bullying. The time has come for new curricula to be in place that deals with the issues facing students today. There have been too many tragedies in the recent school shootings such as Columbine, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and Oikos University. These students were victims of bullying, and due to the lack of education and preventative bullying programs, they did not have the necessary tools to handle such abuse. The students took matters into their own hands and went on bloody rampages in their schools – killing andharming many of their peers.
