I attended a COPA presentation on Bullying at The Manitoba Teachers’ Society this past Saturday, December 8, 2012. The presenter’s did a fantastic job exploring the factors behind bullying, and suggesting strategies to help eliminate bullying in schools. The resources provided are invaluable, and I personally liked one of the presenter’s statement; that schools need to develop a defining statement of bullying, to ensure that a student population understands what is and isn’t acceptable.
However, as coincidence would have it, CTV Winnipeg decided to publish this article online on the same date.
At least everyone’s in agreement that there is no panacea for bullying.
