The paper specifically discusses the role of schools and teachers in preventing bullying from occurring and focuses on the need to educate the staff and students.
From the Paper:"In conclusion, if schools do not educate and provide on going mentoring and leadership, bullying can cause victims psychological harm such as depression, and suicide. Youth victimization has been proven to lead to delinquency among bullies and victims for example carrying weapons and violence on the streets. The theater in which bullying takes place is at home rather then at school, cyber bullying has become a growing problem and without education, and monitoring a child's behavior, bullies can exert their power over their victims causing scenarios such as cyber bullying by proxy. The number one way to avert bullying is to educate the staff and students, setting up seminars on bullying and ways to prevent it, as well as offering youth support and leadership, and following up on reports of bullying instances."
