Empower your Students

The Godfather of Anti-bullying, Dr. Dan Olweus who has researched bully victim problems for more than 20 years found “the single most effective deterrent to bullying is adult authority.” But acceding to Ginette Isenber who is one of the founders of School Lane Charter School, “We cannot impose a sense of safety or attachment on students. We have to empower them and create it with them.”   Many schools agree with and have put together strategies to promote respect and understanding throughout their schools. They have also promoted teacher/student involvement to help the victims and defuse the bullying. So in a sense there is still adult authority but the students are also part of the chain of command.
