Student Action Plan Against Bullying

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

Tell Us Why You Care

  • it's a big issue in today's society.



    adrianna — 13
  • I care because I know how it feels to be bullied, I was bullied for 10 years and I told many teachers and principals but they did nothing about it and just let it keep happening.



    Ty — 17
  • Bullying is wrong, and no one deserves to be treated like they're nothing.



    Kate — 14
  • it is badd!



    mylenn — 11
  • I care because looking down on people is not a good thing to do.



    paw — 13
  • Nobody should EVER be put down because of who they are. Children (and adults!) should feel free to be themselves and not have to worry about what someone else is going to think or do about it. Bullying is wrong, and I know how it feels. You're going to get through this, I promise! <3

For months now at my school I’ve been bullied by this group of girls, or as me and my friend who we’ll call Blondie like to refer to them as, the bully buddies.
They’ve been attacking me and Blondie and my other friend who we’ll call Blue Eyes, for months. The attacks range from physical violence to verbal threats to fake accusations. One day the leader, who we’ll call Snotface, threw all kinds of homophobic, racist, inappropriate, disrespectful comments at me and Blue Eyes. We reported Snotface and lo and behold, a teacher actually did something about it! Snotface and her friend (alias Two-Sided) spent the rest of the day in our vice principal’s office being questioned. Snotface’s parents and my parents were called in and Snotface was given a month of detention. The principal is also putting in measures to protect me Blondie and Blue Eyes from Snotface and Two-Sided. The moral of this story is: If you report someone once and nothing happens, KEEP TRYING. Tell as many people with as much description as you can, till the bullies get what’s coming to them. I know it’s cliche, but it’s true. And remember: you are smart, strong, beautiful, and loved. And don’t let anyone change that.
