Schools working on bullying prevention, still a long way to go
The topic of bullying has been a part of the national conversation since the Columbine High School shooting nearly 15 years ago, but some schools still aren't effectively dealing with the issue that has sadly defined everyday life in and out of class for far too many youngsters. Even though national counselors talk up approaches such as conflict resolution and tolerance, the CDC recently reported during the 2009-2010 school year 23 percent of public schools reported bullying occurred among students on a daily or weekly basis. A higher percentage of middle school students reported being bullied than high school students.
