Educator Warns, ‘Anti-Bully Programs in Schools Nationwide Place Students in Danger Every Day’
FREEPORT, Ohio, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Bullying is a major concern in schools nationwide. About 28 percent of 12- to 18-year-old students reported they were bullied at school in the previous six months, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Unfortunately, the majority of programs to combat bullying being introduced to schools only make the problem worse, (The School Resource Center, 2001, p.3).
The prevailing method of dealing with bullies throughout schools in the United States is one that regards punishment as paramount, the logic of which is inherently flawed, according to studies conducted by Dr. Dennis Regling. By creating a realm for the drafting of foolhardy anti-bully laws that hold schools legally responsible for their students’ behavior, this system of counteracting bullying is compounding the issue, not resolving it.
According to Dr. Dennis Regling, author and educational presenter, the problem is that research, as well as real-life experience, has shown that most anti-bullying programs rarely reduce bullying and often result in an increase. Why is the world’s crusade to eradicate bullying failing? It’s because it was spawned by panic, and panic reduces rational thinking.
Both the American Psychological Association and the National Association of School Psychologists have warned schools as to the myriad of ways such policies cause more harm than good.
With bullying currently such a hot-button issue, the means in which it is handled needs to be re-evaluated. Author Dennis Regling has released his new book, “Everything I Need To Know About Bullies, I Learned In Prison: A Politically Incorrect Guide To Surviving High School.” The book details why current programs don’t work and how they are endangering students. More importantly, it gives solutions to help keep your child safe.
Dr. Dennis Regling has been involved in prison ministry for over 15 years. He has also presented educational assembly programs in over 1400 schools in 26 states. He has interviewed prison inmates and chaplains, school principals, students and parents. What he has learned can help your child survive and thrive in high school and life.
Dennis Regling also offers an amazing Anti-Bully school assembly show, “Don’t Play The Bully Game,” for grades K-8. The assembly includes free posters, books for your library and extensive teacher materials.
