How might we encourage kids to speak up about being bullied?

Alexis, Sabrina, Jose

During our research, we discovered that many people who were bullied didn’t realize that they were being bullied until it got physical. We also learned that the the number of suicide attempts and deaths are increasing at an alarming rate among elementary students and middle schoolers.

Here is some information about the Bully video “First, we have The Bully. This short film, created by 12-year-old Jonah Maxwell, has over a million views. With the help of his father, Jonah created a poignant message about the impact of bullying and cyberbullying. Additionally, he provides tips and encouragement for those who are being bullied.” Through the video the boy explained what could happen in a vitam life of being bullied. Some days he/she will be pushed into the locker of the hallway when as other day it’s to their faces.
