Once regarded as a normal part of childhood, bullying now is recognized for causing lifelong negative effects that are both physical and psychological. Bullying is not simple jokes or comments made in jest, but deliberate actions taken by peers. And cyberbullying, traditional bullying's technology-enabled counterpart, has the potential to be even more devastating to its victims.
Arriving on the heels of increased efforts by the Obama administration to address what U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan characterized as a "silent epidemic," Thompson Information Services's Bullying and Cyberbullying: Policies and Tools for Administrators summarizes the scope of the national problem, analyzes the legal protections for students and provides management tips to help school staff and parents address this problem.
