School-based programs have been developed that can cut down on bullying behaviors among children by as much as 50 percent, and putting those programs in place would stem the tide of bullying violence in U.S. schools, suggests a report from Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, a national, Washington-based network of police chiefs, sheriffs and prosecutors. The report, released last week, points out that victims of bullying are more likely than other children to be suicidal, and that the bullies themselves are far more likely than other children to commit crimes as adults.
