The only solution to bullying is prevention. Yes, we must respond to the crises and the Columbines, but there will never be enough laws, enough school suspensions, or enough jails if we are always trying to “clean up” the problem after it’s reached crisis mode. With every crisis, we are receiving the (ignored) message that we have, again, missed the boat, and need to significantly increase our work on prevention. Prevention is easy and cheap –- everyone can and should participate. There are no innocent bystanders.
