What we have achieved
The first Training Meeting of the Anti-Bullying Certification (ABC) project took place in Palermo and brought together during a week over 60 students, teachers and education experts in order to exchange good practices and develop quality standards for anti-bullying policies in schools.
At average, 19% of students are bullied. But in some countries, up to 30% encounter any form of bullying. Minorities often experience higher levels of bulling. All schools want to fight bullying, but not all know how to do it effectively. Research on bullying shows that school violence and exclusion is always rooted in an institutional and often wider social culture in which competition and marginalization takes place. Effective policies address the culture, not only the individual transgressors on rules.
