Can Bullying be prevented from schools?
The time between elementary and middle school is a time when kids are most confused about who they are, it is at this stage that most kids turn to aggression and bullying. An experiment was done to test if a bullying program would help stop bullying. They put group A students in a bullying program where it taught the students what bullying is and how to stop it. They also had group B, this was a control group, this group had no anti-bullying programs. The study found that students in group A, had less amount of bullying then the control group ( Jenson, Brisson, Bender and Williford, 2013).
