Dealing with Bullying Activity
Prepared by attorney John L. Cooley, WootenHart PLC, Roanoke, VA
Q. Our school occasionally experiences problems with a student who is not presenting a direct threat of violence, but who intimidates or otherwise bullies other students. Through chapel programs and in the classroom, we have attempted to change students' behavior by emphasizing the importance of acting Christianly toward others and not teasing, intimidating, or otherwise bullying. While this has been somewhat effective, we still face the problem. How should we handle this legally?
