One of the current plagues of our society is bullying. Many schools have brought in excellent people to address the issue.

Have you thought about how intentionally making VIRTUE a part of your school system would make a lasting impact?

You can't simply say, "Don't Bully." You have to propose a positive alternative. Virtue is that alternative.

School Crime and Safety: 
(According To The Bureau Of Justice School Bullying and Cyberbullying statistics Study)

• Teenagers say revenge is the strongest motivation for school shootings.

• 87% said shootings are motivated by a desire to "get back at those who have hurt them."

• 86% said, "other kids picking on them, making fun of them or bullying them" causes teenagers to turn to lethal violence in the schools.

• Students recognize that being a victim of abuse at home or witnessing others being abused at home may cause violence in school according to recent school bullying statistics and cyberbullying statistics.

• 61% said students shoot others because they have been victims of physical abuse at home.

• 54% said witnessing physical abuse at home can lead to violence in school.

• The school bullying statistics and cyberbullying statistics showed that students say their schools are not safe. 
The study indicated that those in the lower grades reported being in twice as many fights as those in the higher grades. However, there is a lower rate of serious violent crimes in the elementary level than in the middle or high school.
