Title: Bullying: A Major Barrier to Student Learning (Practice Notes)

Description: School staff are painfully aware that bullying is by far the biggest violence problem on many school campuses.

To reduce violence and promote well-being, schools must create caring, supportive, and safe environments and generate a sense of community.
