Students and staff learn and work best in schools that are safe, disciplined and caring. Support, information and resources are available to help schools prevent bullying and create climates and cultures of safety and respect.
Bullying is a serious problem, not only for students who are bullied, but for the bullies and the students and adults who witness bullying. According to research, the most successful bullying prevention strategies or programs are school-wide and comprehensive. Educating students and adults about the dynamics of bullying is a key element in a whole school program.
The Minnesota Department of Education helps schools develop programming, curricula and intervention practices to create safe schools by teaching social skills, building a positive school climate and repairing harm when it happens.
