Study: Students who feel they belong are less likely to bully
from Education Week
While some may argue in favor of punitive measures for students who bully and others side with improving school climate, a recent survey singles out another factor that may help curb bullying: a sense of belonging. "The more a child feels like they can connect with their family, their peers, and their school, the less likely they are to engage in bullying behavior," said Christopher Slaten, a co-investigator for the survey and an associate professor for the University of Missouri's College of Education.
