SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new infographic released in honor of Bullying Prevention and Awareness Month showing the prevalence and effects of bullying in schools, and 10 strategies to stop bullying in any school or classroom. The infographic, accompanying resources, and additional tools are available to all educators on the company’s main site.
“Bullying, in all its manifestations, is a very real and serious problem for thousands of students nationwide, preventing them from learning effectively and thriving at school,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “These resources, compiled from our decades of researching and documenting best educational practices, can help educators everywhere combat bullying, so every student can learn, grow, and master the skills they need to graduate ready for college, a career and life.”
The infographic provides educators an overview of bullying forms, effects, prevalence, and prevention strategies. Highlights include:
- One in every four students is bullied
- One in every 10 students drops out of school due to bullying
- Children who are bullied are more likely to have migraines, depression, anxiety, and consider or attempt suicide
Despite these grim statistics, research shows there are 10 strategies educators can use to stop bullying, including:
- Change the school environment
- Organize an anti-bullying committee
- Train staff in prevention
- Devote class time to prevention
- Increase adult supervision in “hot spots”
In addition to a full explanation of the strategies, the infographic points educators to a free trial of Edivation, where they can access more anti-bullying resources.
