Bullying and Open Enrollment PDF - Some state anti-bullying policies require districts to adopt strategies to protect students who have been bullied from further victimization. A few states go one step further, adopting specialized interdistrict transfer policies to allow victims of bullying to enroll in another school district, or allowing for the transfer of bullies themselves. This report describes state policies to allow bullying victims, or bullies themselves, to transfer to another school or district. (Jennifer Dounay Zinth, November 2011)...

Technology, Teen Dating Violence and Abuse, and Bullying - Technology's role in teen dating violence and abuse and teen bullying was studied in 10 northeastern schools. Researchers confirmed online abuse, harassment and bullying are common teen experiences. One in four dating teens is abused or harassed online or through texts by their partners.

Practical short- and long-term recommendations are presented in 11 briefs. (AERA, April 2013)...

Briefing Paper on Bullying: An Analysis of Ten Years of Child Helpline Data on Bullying - An analysis of 10 years of worldwide child helpline data yields some interesting information. For example, all those years of bullying prevention programs do not seem to be stemming the tide. The number of contacts that helplines receive on the issue is increasing. Because children as young as 13 now access social networking websites, cyber bullying also has become a major issue. Children face four forms of bullying: emotional, physical, exposure (as witnesses to bullying) and theft. While most bullying is perpetrated by peers, over a third of perpetrators are adults, and 21% are teachers. (Child Helpline International, October 2012)...

Addressing Bullying: State Guidance to Districts and Schools is Both Helpful and a Missed Opportunity - Renewed legislative attention on bullying has led state and local education agencies to enhance their focus on bullying. Some state education agencies have mainly implemented the letter of the law, others have used the legislation to expand attention to the problem. As another barrier to learning, bullying must be addressed and not pursued as just one more initiative rather than as a major opportunity to develop a comprehensive and cohesive system for addressing barriers to learning and teaching. (Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA, 2011)...
