B.C. Premier Christy Clark today rolled out a 10-point anti-bullying strategy.

"We all want our kids to be safe, especially at school. That's why when I became Premier, I promised to address bullying in our school system as a high priority for my government," Clark said in a written statement.

"I am so proud to announce ERASE Bullying, a nation-leading strategy that will ensure every child in our province feels safe, accepted and respected."

This strategy, which will begin in the coming school year, is expected to help prevent, identify and stop harmful activities.

It will be in place across all 60 school districts.

The 10 elements of the strategy include:

* A five-year, multi-level training program for educators and community partners to help them proactively identify and address threats.

* New online tools, including a Smartphone app, for kids to report bullying anonymously.

* Dedicated safe school co-ordinators in every school district.

* Stronger codes of conduct for schools.

* Provincial guidelines for threat assessments.

* New online resources for parents.

* Formal protocols to guide and co-ordinate the work of school and community partners.

* A provincial advisory committee with representatives from police, school and social agency partners.

* Focusing one of the existing six provincial teacher professional development days on anti-bullying.

* Anti-bullying and threat assessment training for pre-service teachers.

Kevin Cameron, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response, lauded the strategy.

"With this strategy, the British Columbia government has firmly placed itself as the national leader in supporting the development of anti-bullying and threat assessment protocols," he said in a news release.
Good luck with that Christy

What a joke! The first error in logic is to assume that teachers would be willing to take an active role. It's been my experience with the school system that most teachers prefer to close thier eyes and ignore these kinds of problems.
I've seen hours and hours wasted during pro d days discussing this problem. Theres always lots of commenting and suggestions but it is always for nought. Within a few weeks it's all forgotten. I would think if they really cared they would have solved this problem long ago.

Sounds good to me, but it will Succeed/Fail based upon its' implementation. With the proper supports in place, what Teachers used to do is moot.

This won't do FA to deal with bullying. Schools in North America are biased in FAVOR of the bullies and unless you're willing to start firing the faculty who allow it and then prosecute the ones who encourage it then nothing at all will happen.

Friend of mine at church has a boy (14) who was being bullied. The past year now I've been teaching him military Krav Maga and the bullies have learned to leave him alone at the cost of some severe beat downs. His grades have gone up, he's starting to achieve in Boy Scouts, and the kid is not depressed anymore.

I say that because the way to deal with bullies is to beat the little f*ckers down to teach them not to torture weaker kids. But, of course, that won't happen so what we'll get instead with Christy will be another government program run by people who want everyone to talk and sing 'Kumbaya' and meanwhile the bullies will mock this kind of BS as the gutless policy that it is and they won't even slow down on their sadism.

:evil:

I agree Bart. Fighting back is the only things bullies take notice of. Bullies are cowards and someone fighting back will hurt the cowardly fucks.

You might not win and you might take a beating but the bullies will leave you alone and find an easier target.

Bullies = wolves. Fighting back means you are not a sheep. This strategy by the BC govt. is well meaning but doomed.

Fight or be bullied. It's that simple.

I agree that fighting back is the best strategy. I didn't... I should have since I was bigger than most of the guys who bullied me. But I don't think fighting back is an option for everyone. Some kids are really useless when it comes to fighting and will do nothing more than humiliate themselves further.

The only solution for a bully is to hand him his own teeth back, after removing them
from your fists first.

This program is a lot of BS.


Teaching self defense in school might help, but we cant have the precious darlings
hitting each other.



Who actually thinks this kind of nonsense would work ?

oh..... figures :roll:

That's the thing. Some kids aren't fighters.

Life is full of bullies. If you don't deal with them at school you will be dealing with them at work.

A strategy is better than nothing but it's up to each individual to stick up for themselves. No amount of rules or oversight will stop the bad eggs from bullying the meek.

Disagreed. Certainly Fighting Back is the best method, but to say it's the only method is ridiculous.

So.....what other methods would you deem effective.

Being small in stature I was bullied at school, until I started martial arts. The bullies left me alone without having to lift a finger.

There are Adults at school. Surely they can intervene?

Are all u all gonna start advocating getting rid of Police in favour of Individuals simply taking care of Criminal Acts/Criminals directly? You're essentially advocating the same here with Bullying in school.

Th usual forum suspects are so full of shit. While Im not sure if this program will be successful (as was pointed out earlier the results will be in the implementation), the fact that schools will get involved instead sticking their heads in the sand can only be a good thing.

The whole "teach the kid to fight" thing is BS Hollywood fantasy.

1) Some kids just cant fight, period. They just dont have the heart for it, or the physical strength or coordination and no amout of Uncle Barts backyard MMA class is going to change that for these types of kids.

2) Some bullies are older, bigger and tougher and fight other tough kids all the time. They win some, they lose some and are not afraid to get their ass kicked.

3) Most bullying is done by whole roups of kids against one individual, often an entire class picks on just one kid. Trying to fight one of them will just end in a gang beating from the rest if it is physical bullying.

4) Most bullying - and some of the worst bullying- is non-physical and mainly consists of a group of kids constantly ridiculing, verbally harassing and publicly humiliating the victim. Resorting to violence is not an acceptable solution to these situations.

In my case no adults intervened.

Bullies only bully when they can get away with it, which they often do. Why is it a bully never goes after someone as large as themselves? After all bullying is a cowardly act

Often confronting the neanderthals makes them back off.
