UNL research finds bullying at all ages

On the border of Texas and Mexico, a young boy in El Paso learned how to navigate an environment of drugs, gangs, divorced parents and bullying. Now he’s a doctoral student and Hack Harassment Campus Ambassador at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His name is Raul Palacios.

Palacios was just nerdy enough to hang with the cool and smart kids and athletic enough to play basketball with the jocks. He found a way to coexist between different groups. He accomplished this until meeting his first bully in middle school.

This bully targeted Palacios, ramming his head against the vending machines and threatening to kill his family.

The mum of a seven-year-old boy who was continuously bullied at school has taken to Facebook to raise awareness after he was hospitalised with head wounds.

Safe Schools: Victoria’s DET can’t prove homophobic bullying

Victorian education officials have conceded there is a lack of hard evidence on the rates of homo­phobic bullying in schools to justify the state government’s decis­ion to mandate the contentious Safe School program.

Responding to questions on notice after a recent parliamentary hearing, the state’s Department of Education and Training revealed this week that it could not provide a statistical breakdown of bullying cases by cause, such as race, gender, physical appeara­nce, disability, faith or sexual preference.

The admission comes as the Andrews Labor government has committed to spending more than $2 million rolling out the Safe Schools program, developed by La Trobe University academics but now run by the department, to all public secondary schools.

Cyber Bullying Warning Over Controversial App ‘SimiSimi’

Parents and teachers should be aware of a new app sweeping through Ireland which is raising concerns of anonymous cyber bullying among students.

The SimiSimi app is marketed as a ‘cute’ artificial intelligence robot which collects user comments on subjects and generates responses based on these comments when questions are posed to it.

These comments are made anonymously by users of the app. Once made, the comments cannot be deleted or reported.

Parents speak out against bullying policy

A few parents say it’s time to address bullying at the grade school. They say it’s a problem. So is the way it’s handled.

Several moms went to the school board meeting tonight. One spoke at length about the problems her daughter and other students have had with bullying. She wants the school board to examine and change the bullying policy, at least at the grade school level.

At this month’s school board meeting public comments came first. Amy Huskisson started her time with a story her 6 year-old daughter told her about a 9 year-old boy at recess.

She says, “He chased her down, wrapped his arms around her, and squeezed her as hard as he could to the extent that her face turned red, almost a purpleish color.
