A CBS affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reports:
A lot of schools spend countless hours trying to stop bullying. But some question if they are sending the right message.
It started as a simple look at bullying. University of Texas at Arlington criminologist Seokjin Jeong analyzed data collected from 7,000 students from all 50 states.
He thought the results would be predictable and would show that anti-bullying programs curb bullying. Instead -- he found the opposite.
Jeong said it was, “A very disappointing and a very surprising thing. Our anti-bullying programs, either intervention or prevention does not work.”
But how surprising is this, really, especially if some of the "anti-bullying"campaigns are themselves "unsafe"?
