Stand Up for Others

According to current statistics, more than 30 percent of our school-age young people—approximately 5.7 million children—are bullied in schools, on playgrounds, and in recreational facilities each year. Research shows that these numbers can be reduced by nearly half through the use of effective bullying prevention programs.

During the month of October, in observance of National Bullying Prevention Month, schools and organizations across the country will join STOMP Out Bullying to encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying and to increase awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on children. As part of the observation, the week of October 21, 2013, is dedicated as STAND UP for Others Week. It's a week-long commitment to stand up for victims of bullying that ends on Friday, October 25, the internationally observed STAND UP to Bullying Day.

Bullies tend to back off when others stand up for victims, so we must all learn how to deal with bullies and take a stand. This year be part of the solution and help us make safety—the second tenet of the Whole Child Initiative—a priority. ASCD and our whole child partners have compiled a number of useful antibullying resources to learn how to deal with bullies, including

Resources for Educators

Resources for Parents
