Fear of bullying is stopping some children getting an education —Children’s Commissioner

In an occupied country, bullying is the occupiers’ “survival” policy. Remove Bullying from New Zealand Schools, and pakeha will have to pack their bags and go home.—Moderator TEAA

“Bullying is a problem in all schools,” Commissioner  said in a report which will be released at a school violence summit in Wellington, March 16, 2009.

The report was prepared amid “indications from all quarter”‘ that school violence was affecting the welfare of a many students, she said.

“Calls to my office, our engagement with children and young people, the Office’s Young People’s Reference Group and media coverage of some severe incidents indicated it was timely to do an independent inquiry into peer bullying, violence and abuse,” she said.

The report recommends changes to the school system and offers a “comprehensive guide to understanding and successfully dealing with bullying and violence in schools”, Kiro said.

Bullying transcends beyond the school gate by way of Internet and cellphones., she said.

The following excerpts are from her comments on the report:

“Students cannot learn effectively if they are physically or verbally abused, victims of violence or bullying, or if their school is unsafe,” she said.

“The extensive reach of these forms of bullying often mean the victim gets no respite and the bullying is not restricted to time at school but is ongoing.”

“This report is not to blame and shame. While there are indications that some schools are not dealing with this problem appropriately, more schools than not are committed to providing a safe environment and have clear whole school policies and procedures to ensure the issue of bullying is addressed,” she said.

“This inquiry is focused on the way forward, with solutions and equipping teachers and schools with information on how to deal with bullying when it happens.”

“We stress that aggressive, violent and bullying antisocial behaviour will only be effectively reduced when the intervention involves an ongoing commitment at multiple levels,” Dr Kiro said.

“New Zealanders have a high tolerance for violence and while schools cannot be responsible for the ills of society, schools can make a difference in how violence is dealt with.”

Education Ministurd Anne Tolley reported said  that there was no easy solution to bullying, however she has read the report “with interest”.
