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.

  • I care about bullying because it's not fair for other students to be treated unkindly when they don't deserve to. It is very unfair for those students who are trying to get the day over and after get bullied. We have to do something about it because, if us not who? and if not now when?

  • When I was in kindergarten, a girl in my class called me fat, but my best friend stood up for me. I didn't understand because I wasn't fat. Then years later my brother got bullied by someone in my class, so one day I sat with my brother on our school bus. My brother was wearing a hat and this kid kept taking his hat. So I stood up ripped it out of his hand and said "You want to try that again? You better stop", he stopped after that and apologized. The moral of the story is it's not gonna get better until you do something about it. If you're currently getting bullied, stand up to them or ask an adult or just someone you trust for help.

I was bullied in elementary school
Anonymous

When I was in 4th grade I liked this one boy but there were 2 people who would always bully me because of it. They would laugh at me for it. They would go out of their way to make me feel miserable. I finally stood up to them one day and then I reported them to the principal.
