Czech Schools Defeat Bullies With Understanding

Students and teachers in the Czech Republic are learning what it takes to reduce bullying in their schools. Elementary school Lada Jelasicova students reported well below the national average as having experienced bullying. Administrators saw a reduction in bullying after they added assistant teachers to classrooms and got police and social workers involved whenever there was a serious aggression — in order to demonstrate a rapid response. Teachers are also attending training to break down their own biases and incorporate anti-bullying into their curriculum.
