October is National Bullying Prevention Month, with 2016 marking the 10th anniversary of this annual campaign against bullying. Over the past 10 years, increased public awareness of the epidemic of bullying in schools and online has given rise to significant developments. In recent years, state after state has adopted bullying prevention legislation. As of April 2016, when the “Bully Free Montana Act” was signed into law, every state in the nation has a bullying prevention law. The laws require school districts to adopt anti-bullying policies, but specific provisions vary from state to state.
This progress at the state and local level is encouraging, demonstrating a commitment to addressing all incidents of bullying and sending a message that bullying will not be tolerated. However at the classroom level, teachers do not always know how to promote bullying prevention in practical and meaningful ways. The new book The Bullying Prevention Book of Lists by Kenneth Shore, is a valuable resource for all school staff, including administrators, teachers, and paraprofessionals. It outlines critical facts about bullying, identifies unique considerations for special populations, reviews best-practices, and offers practical strategies for preventing and responding to bullying. Additionally, the book guides readers to useful online resources.
