What do you think schools can do to help prevent bullying?

“Maybe be more involved on the playground — monitoring child relationships.”
“I don’t know.”
“I’m not sure there is anything they could do. It’s something that’s going to be around, at least somewhat, forever.”
“It’s a major concern. I’ve heard of a program that involves going into schools to change the environment so that people feel like they have a voice to speak up when they witness or are victim (of bullying). There needs to be a space to talk about what’s happened — if not, kids can feel it’s their fault. It takes a whole community to stand up to bullying.”
