Definition of Bullying
What is bullying? Bullying is intentional harmful behavior by one or more that is directed towards a specific victim. Bullying exists when a student deliberately dominates and harasses another student who is perceived to have less power. Bullying is repeated and intentional.
What is the 'Caring Majority'? The Caring Majority is a group of kids that care enough to stand up and support those who are being bullied. These students are called UPSTANDERS. No longer can we stand by and let others be bullied. They use their words and presence to support students that are unable to speak up for themselves.
