In this article, the writer notes that the classrooms of today are filled with students of diverse cultures, socioeconomic status, race and ethnicity, and learning and physical ability. The writer discusses that the topic of bullying has emerged in the past few years as an issue of growing concern among students, parents, and school administrators alike. The writer explains that bullying can best be defined as repeated oppression, physical or psychological, of a less powerful person by a more powerful person or group. This paper examines bullying in terms of gender differences, both "bully" and "victim" characteristics, and the causes and consequences of bullying for all those involved. The writer concludes that the problems associated with bullying must not become accepted in the educational system, and remain an obstacle to fostering human learning and development.
