Keeping students with disabilities safe from bullying
from U.S. Department of Education
As Secretary Duncan has noted, the Department of Education is committed to making sure that all of our young people grow up free of fear, violence and bullying. Bullying not only threatens a student's physical and emotional safety at school, but fosters a climate of fear and disrespect, creating conditions that negatively impact learning undermining students' ability to achieve to their full potential. Unfortunately, we know that children with disabilities are disproportionately affected by bullying.
