Bullying Research Project

Kevin Haverson, Drew Swanson, Samm Swanson, Hunter

Bullying is a worldwide problem not only in today’s youth but throughout adulthood. It
has been an increasingly obnoxious problem over the years due to the advances in
technology. People all the world now have to deal with not only the regular form of
bullying, face to face, but the technological aspect of it as well, online. Bullying has
become as easy as clicking send and it is so easy to hide behind a computer screen
rather than facing the victim of these hurtful words.

Bullying is an epidemic that is widely overlooked and seen as a smaller problem than it
really is. Bullying is not just the problem of getting rid of the bullies, but molding the
current bystander into someone that stands up rather than watching the victim of
bullying helplessly. This Handbook is designed to open readers to the idea that bullying
is more than just one person.
What is Bullying?
Bullying is a worldwide problem not only in today’s youth but
throughout adulthood. Bullying includes the harassment, teasing,
discrimination, mocking, excluding, and victimization of another
human being. Bullying has been an increasingly obnoxious problem
over the years due to the advances in technology which had created
a new form of bullying, cyber bullying.
El Dorado’s Bullying Policy
El Dorado Union High school District Board Prohibits “at any district school or
school activity, unlawful discrimination, harassment, intimidation and bullying of any
student based on the student’s actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group
identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex,
sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; or association with a
person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.
Types of Bullying/Bullying within our School

● Rumors- A currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth.
● Cyberbullying- The use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending
messages of an intimidating or threatening nature.
● Mocking- Making fun of someone or something in a cruel way; derisive.
● Exclusion- Deny someone access to or bar someone from a place, group, or privilege.
What do you do when being Bullied?
● Rather than trying to resolve the problem yourself “take the situation to a proper
school authority”, bullies feed off of reaction and feel empowered when they get an
individual to react back to them” (Kowalski 153).

● Speaking to the bully directly and asking why he/she is bullying you could be very
effective, this does require some courage and strength to hold your own. Bullying is
something that stays with a person their whole life, in no way should you feel weak or
cowardly for not being able to confront your bully. Seek help people will be there for

● If escalated, report the situation to law enforcement. Bullying can often lead to self
harm and even outbreaks of anger that leads to extreme violence that can be
harmful to others, if necessary report the bullying to law enforcement before more
damage is done.
Bully has become a cancer all around the world that is destroying our youth, in today’s
world there has to be a solution, there must be a guide to cure this illness within our
society. Overall, the information provided in this guide is intended to empower victims of
bullying and to provide useful tips on what to do if you are being bullied or how to prevent
the victimization of another. Ron Banks writes of solutions that can be used to avoid
bullying in his article, “Bullying in Schools” that focuses on “A comprehensive
intervention plan that involves all students, parents, and school staff, … to ensure that all
students can learn in a safe and fear-free environment” (Banks 142). This plan creates a
comfortable environment for the students to open up about bullying within their schools.
Students then get to feel like they have a voice and that they are never alone.
