Study suggests anti-bullying programs may encourage bullying

ARLINGTON, TX- Many schools across the country, and right here in Southern Colorado, have anti-bullying initiatives. However, a new study suggests students who attend those schools are more likely to become a victim of bullying.

The findings by University of Texas at Arlington researchers, recently published in the Journal of Criminology, run counter to the common perception that bullying prevention programs protect our children.

In fact, researchers say one reason may be that students become highly exposed to what a bully is through the language or slogans of these campaigns, and know what to do or say when questioned by parents and teachers.
