How Bullying Affects Education

Instructor: Artem Cheprasov

Artem has a doctor of veterinary medicine degree.

In this lesson, you're not only going to learn how bullying affects an individual student's education but how bullying affects the educational environment as a whole.

What Is Bullying?

Soon, you're going to follow along with Mary. She's a student in 8th grade. You're going to learn the signs of bullying thanks to her. She has been a victim of bullying and wants others to know, especially educators and parents, what signs to look out for with respect to bullying and education, signs a child may be trying to hide entirely or may not want to directly reveal to a parent.

Bullying refers to often repeated action of verbal and/or physical abuse that makes the victim feel real or perceived powerlessness and/or intimidation.

Bullying & Individual Education

Mary first tells us that she used to love school. She was one of those students who actually loved to get up in the morning, go to class, answer questions in class, do homework, and proudly show off her report card at the end of each quarter and semester to her parents. She was always on the honor roll and would constantly enter reading contests to earn free pizza coupons. She was on the spelling bee team and chess team. She was a model student.
