Faith Pollard Hon-English 3 Mrs. Gallos 21 March 2018 How to Stop Bullying Bullying is the number one issue for adolescents in high school and middle school across the United States. People’s common knowledge about bullying is that they think that it is just a kid picking on another kid, but really it is much more than that. Bullying can happen in different scenarios and types such as, physical, verbal/social, and the most common recently cyberbullying. Bullying causes people to feel like they have no place in the word and it makes them feel so much pain that they believe their only escape is through committing suicide.

According to the American Association for the Child's Right to Play, many school systems have dropped recess since 1989. “Personal conversations with principals and teachers suggest that they feel pressured to pack more instruction into the school day because of new calls for accountability” (Jarett Olga). Some of the main
Does the dress code bring more harm to the community than benefits? In recent studies, by the National Center for Education Statistics, more than half of the schools in the United States supplemented the dress code in their education (“Should Schools Have Dress Codes?” 1). As a result, complaints, made by students and parents alike, are seen more commonly in the courts. Charles Haynes, a First Amendment Center scholar, anticipates these cases, will be won by the students and parents because, it is crucial for students to express themselves to prepare them for society (Haynes 1). The dress code negatively impacts students by stopping them from finding their identities and diverting attention from individuality, threatening their futures.
Should students wear school uniforms? This topic has been brought up many times in America and other countries around the world. School uniforms do not stop bullying, instead on the other hand many increase violent attacks. Research by Tony Volk, PhD, Associate Professor at Brock University, stated, “School uniforms increase the average number of assaults by about 14 per year in the most violent schools.”
Bullies are usually stronger and victims are usually perceived as weaker and unable to protect themselves.” (Masterson,1997) Bullying expands in many aspects of everyday life; from schoolchildren and teenagers, to adults , working environments and even spouses and family members. Considering that the first signs of bullying appear among schoolchildren, we should examine it in its infancy, that is, bullying in early years and school life, which in turn becomes with the passage of years violence and in some cases even crime. As far as bullying at school is concerned, “one definition is that a student is being bullied or victimized, when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time , to negative actions on the part of one or more other students.”
By implementing the bullying courses within school systems, it would potentially save many people from the act of bullying and the long-term effects that are caused from the trauma. Applying the bullying course as a requirement course within schools systems will diminish cyberbullying throughout the generations to

Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year, 1 in 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying, and 90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying. As you can see, bullying is a very serious problem that happen in schools very often. In over 3.2 million students being bullied, there are those who are bullied because the way they are dressed. I am proposing to the motion: This house believes that students must wear school uniforms, and I believe that wearing a school uniform has a lot of advantages. In this essay, I will focus on the following points: Uniforms bring unity into schools, improves student’s behavior both in and out of school, and reduce distraction.
There was a short discussion on bullying. It was stated that bullying is a problem within every school system even if it was not caught. In Westridge the punishment fits the crime, for example, if a kid was calling another student names it would be reported and the kid would have to write a sorry letter. There is no systematic way to handle bullying within the Grand Island Public School System. Until there is a systematic way to handle bullying there are very sporadic and different ways to handle it within different schools.
The National Gang Center Bulletin was written in order to give us information on the presence of gangs in the schools. The percentage of students in both middle and high school really shocks and saddens me; I did not realize that this number was so high. There should not be thirty-five and forty-five percent of students in any grade level affiliated to gangs.
Not only can staff members assist the students at Madera High School, but students can also help eachother out in terms of charisma. For example, students can help eachother out by standing up for students when seen being bullied. Then maybe the students being bullied may have the ability to stand up for themselves knowing they have someone that have their back’s. In fact, when the question, “What would you do if someone came to you for help due to harassment or bullying? Please explain” majority of the students said they would give advice, be there for them, and talk to an adult or parent for help.
Being said, students spend most of their time at school, it is the most common place where bullying takes place, especially in middle school. It is becoming a trouble as it is interfering with the student’s academics during school. Bullying is a school matter, school administrators need to deal with situations, and have regulations to create a safe environment for all students. In the article of “School Bullying Declines, Federal Government Says” by Mike Kennedy, strongly supports the idea of helping bullied victims. Research shows students who are a victim struggle in school and would often skip class, furthermore are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, be depressed and are at higher risk of committing suicide (Kennedy).
These were just extra obstacles that were put in my way for reason to benefit at all, considering I was told that junior year was already the hardest year for any high schooler anyway. I was furious yet frightened to see the thing that I value and work for, to be turned against me and everyone else. Across many schools within Jeffco, students all together performed a walk out during school to protest this issue to point. But this walk out was only the beginning of the Jeffco Recall that many teachers, parents, and students supported and carried out throughout the year. And while we did have to compensate for their poor decisionmaking that year, the recall was eventually set forth and finalized at the beginning of my senior year.
In homeschooling, children are educated at home by a parent or a tutor. There are nearly two million homeschooled children in the United Stated with the number increasing by 10-12 % each year (Campbell, 2013). Parents who homeschool their kids, they do it because they do not trust the current school system and they feel their kids will do better if they take control of their education. Others do it because they want their kids to follow their religious or moral beliefs, or they are afraid for their children’s safety since in public schools they are exposed to drugs, bulling and violence. On the other hand, homeschooling has some negative aspects as well.
