How Do Mandan Schools Handle Bullying?
This is one of those subjects in schools that should NEVER be
The only subjects you should have in school are the ones that have been around since the caveman (cavewoman) days - Math, English, and yuck, even Biology. Bullying should NEVER be a subject in schools, unfortunately, it is as real as it gets. For those that have been and still are a victim of this act of hostility, you never forget it. It stays with you in your memory bank forever. Schools should be a safe harbor, where kids of all ages come to learn, not fear the bullies.
Bullying happens all over the world, not to sound so overdramatic, but it truly does
Some statistics are quite alarming, according to KX NET "... a 2019 study shows about 20 percent of students between the ages of 12 through 18 were victims of bullying" That study was from stopbullying.gov. So what can be done about it? Imagine the worries that go on in a parent's head when they know their kid or kids have been a victim of bullying?
How do Mandan schools approach bullying?
I believe how the Mandan Public Schools handle bullying is the smartest way. When an aggressive act first takes place against a student, the school will handle it, but as KX NET reported "... but when it’s been assessed as a criminal act, it’s handed over to officials"
"Officials" as in with the Mandan Police Department
Inflicting physical and mental pain on others can cause deadly situations, as in suicide. This isn't just cases of mild teasing, KX NET added that officials say "... bullying can happen anywhere from three to four times a day in schools" There are actually preventive classes for students to take to learn more about ways to deflect bullying.
