Anonymous Survey On Bullying Given To Students

Behavioral survey given to students as a way to measure bullying, violence, alcohol, and drug use.

To help maintain an element of safety and health education at the North Country Road Middle School, the principal Matt Clark sent a letter home to parents letting them know he would be conducting an anonymous student survey pertaining to “bullying, violence, alcohol, and drug use.”

“To gather this information, we have chosen Pride Surveys questionnaire. Pride Surveys has over 30 years of experience surveying students in school systems across the U.S. Survey procedures have been developed to protect your child’s privacy and allow for anonymous participation,” said Clark in the letter.

“The Miller Place school district has given the survey to our grade 6 – 12 students every 3 or 4 years since 1995… A copy of the survey we will use will be available in the Principal’s office for your review, and a summary of the information gathered will be shared with parents when the results are obtained.

What do you think the results of the survey will show? Comment below.

There is NO SUCH THING, as anonymous in a public school.

"Behavioral survey given to students as a way to measure bullying, violence, alcohol, and drug use." And what is the "Plan of Action" the school is going to do with the result of the outcome of the survey. We need more communication face to face, less cell phone to computer. Parents need to take a more active role in discipline and follow through.

Maybe they get a friendly referral to Pax Christi/ Fr. Pizarelli. You can bet Tax Payers are going to be paying, somewhere along the line, with kickbacks parcelled out to some kind of local "drug rehab" artistes. And you don't expect ANY 'cure'...because if you do that, there is no future way, to make money off the Govt. grants, and State handouts off the backs of Tax Payers or the charges with drug problems. Overall, it's a very lucrative business, preying upon parents.

Where do the schools come up with these projects? Concentrate on teaching not on surveys..what a joke! The anti bullying starts at home and is carried out throughout the kid's life.

Schools are largely supported with 'free' programs, and class 'learning' materials, from companies, whose job it is to politically Indoctrinate children, AND parents, with a View of Things, that has NOTHING to do with 'learning' something they can use in Life.

To try to help combat bullying, songs can teach children about kindness and tolerance. The song “Be a Buddy, not a Bully” can be heard on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or7WPUtUnRo

While someone is getting pummeled, they can sing the song, and EVERYTHING is all Good !

. Parents build your children, so that they will not find it necessary to have the approval of their peers. If being like other children is not important to them, they will find it easier to say no when they are supposed to say no. Children are incapable of solving the problem because it’s about power, and each time a bully picks on someone, the bully’s power is enforced.Victims of bullying spare themselves distress, by detachment; denying their ability to experience happiness. For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Keep safe bring protection with you check this out at http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home.
