Bullying: In Search of a Solution

DESPITE THE BEST efforts of anti-bullying policies, organizations and student groups, bullying continues to happen – in our schools, on the playground and on the web.

She and school board officials agree: the solution to this problem lies in collaboration. Parents, in particular, of both victims and bullies, need to come to the table or the problem will persist.
