Bullying has become an increasingly serious problem in today's schools. Many states have passed legislation to ensure schools do all they can to prevent and address bullying. Even though the school is a place that is to be safe for all children, in some instances this is not the case. This paper discusses bullying and focuses on the different tactics students who bully use at middle levels. Educators can prevent problems by becoming aware of where bullying takes place and how educators can cope and confront this problem. Discussed are tactics to create new programs and policies and what process it takes to implement the most sound and fair policy in a school. Different roles and procedures are discussed to help educators include all stakeholders in the process. Detailed analysis and descriptions are presented and differentiated and various plans to be implemented are described.
