Turning on the news today often brings you tragic stories about a child that was bullied so much at school that they sought out drastic measures to make the bullying go away. With these stories so rampant in the media, parents are more aware of bullying and thus, more concerned about sending their child off to school each day.
In 2001, a bullying study of 15,000 US students was conducted. The results of this study showed that of the students surveyed, 17% of students grades 6-10 reported having been bullied “sometimes,” with 8% being bullied once a week. 19% of students surveyed said they had been a bully to others “sometimes” or more. These statistics are exactly why school officials and parents need to take action against bullying in schools.
Although most schools today have a zero tolerance policy or other bullying rules, they need to be more strongly enforced. One way to enforce your school’s no bullying policies is with safety signs . Although “no bullying” safety signs won’t necessarily stop bullies in their tracks, they can help reinforce the rules you have. These safety signs act as a reminder to other to report any bullying activity they see. Installing no bullying safety signs also show the general public that you’re trying to create a safe atmosphere for students to learn in without the interruption of bullies.
Taking a stand against bullying involves more than just school officials. These safety signs make it clear that bullying will not be tolerated and that anyone can help enforce the rules. Create an atmosphere conducive to learning and keep students safe by ordering your no bullying safety signs today.
