If you and you alone could prevent bullying in schools, how would you do it?

 Unfortunately, one person can't fight bullying, alone .  It takes vigilance on the part of everyone around.

Yes, I know that.  But my 11 year old daughter's teachers apparently don't, lol.  Today's question is her essay assignment.  I'm just trying to get some ideas for her.  The essay is due Feb 12th ;)

This is a tough one. I would stand up for myself if I was the one being bullied. I would also stand up to the bullier if someone else was bullied. Usually the bully was bullied by someone else.

 One person can't prevent bullying becuase of the amount of people and the inability to keep an eye on everyone at the same time. The best way to prevent bullying is to make it a community effort by making every one aware to what can happen if someone is being bullied. The best way to help is to get everyone involved.

I would have a class that was required for everyone. Bullying or the one who is the bully I believe have issues on themselves so teaching and talking is the only way!

I'd put the bullies in a separate school system.

I think bullying comes from a lack of social training, and that it should be a requirement in schools that teachers learn how to recognize it and how to handle it, and students are required to have social skills classes as part of the curriculum. Kids have to be taught how to have empathy for each other, and to hold each other accountable.
