Hard steps not yet taken: Ending bullying in our schools
from Edutopia (commentary)
Maurice Elias, a contributor for Edutopia, writes: "While we have made progress in reducing bullying and related behaviors in many of our schools, the problem persists in too many others. This is partly because we see it as an 'engineering' problem, when in fact it is more of a philosophical and moral one. Since there is abundant guidance about what to do to end bullying, I wanted to get a different perspective from the voice of an advocate. Dr. Stuart Green is the director of New Jersey Coalition for Bullying Awareness and Prevention. Dr. Green has fielded numerous calls for over a decade from parents about children who have been bullied with slow or inadequate responses from their schools. This has been true even in states like New Jersey with strong, clear anti-bullying laws."
