Bullying


Bullying

As noted by Olweus (2001), “a student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students."  There are a wide range of behaviors consistent with bullying, including physical, verbal, and relational manifestations.
