Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among all aged human beings. Bullying is repetitive bad behavior resulting with depression, lower marks, loss of friends or even suicide.

People bully because they feel the need or loss of power, so to regain that feeling, they need to sabotage somebody else that is weaker than them. No one likes bullies, and I mean no one.

Forms of bullying is teasing, name-calling, inappropriate sexual comments, threatening to cause harm, taunting, being physical, social bullying and ignoring people.

Everyone has been bullied, whether it was at school, at college, at university, at your job or a conference. Everyone has been bullied. http://nces.ed.gov... has statistics that say worldwide 28% of students in years 6-12 have experienced being bullied.

Research at http://www.stopbullying.gov... proves that cyber bullying is growing. However, because of rapid change of social gaming for kids, it is getting harder to design surveys that accurately capture trends.

Anti-bullying should be promoted at schools because it will teach children how to deal with bullying and hopefully decrease that 28% world wide to below 10%. There should be adds on television about how to deal with bullying. Everyone should help.

Is it better seeing a fake burger add or a decent advertisement indicating the struggle that our children have and websites they can go for help? We should help everyone and reduce the amount of deaths each year due to suicide.

Overall, promoting anti-bullying will make our society a better place, and our schools an enjoyable environment. No child has the rights to go hiding under his\her bed for the sake of not wanting to be picked on at school. Kids should be learning things, so how about we start with a life skill?

If anti-bullying was taught at schools it would increase:
-awareness
-good behavior
-knowledge about what you should do

It would decrease:
-victims
-bullies
-number of people committing suicide

Pro failed to tell me how this will be achieved. And I don't think it will as first of all, bullies are usually determined and won't back off simply because the teacher told them to. Pro failed to explain what he meant by good behaviour. For most students they do not learn anything more in anti bullying as it is more of a campaign. Pro failed to explain what you meant by knowledge about what you should do. I do not think it will decrease the number of victims because, as I have said, most bullies understand what they are doing and choose to do it anyways and has a good enough reason for doing it. Again, Pro failed to explain how it will decrease the number of people committing suicide. Vote Con.

Bullying isn't as big of a deal as you think, and bullying at schools isn't reduced by anti bully campaigns.
