In this presentation, Senior Research Scientist Nan Stein, Ed.D., will discuss three main points related to the use of the label âbullyingâ in schools: the term âbullyingâ is imprecise and vague, and used as a default, a crutch, and a place holder; there is no agreement on the definition of âbullying,â and neither state laws nor researchers can agree on a common definition; and claims of effectiveness of classroom interventions/curriculum on bullying reduction are often inflated, exaggerated, and self-serving, and should be met with skepticism.
