Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment in Our Nation's Classrooms



Nationwide, about 20% of students ages 12-18 report being bullied during the 2017-18 school year according to data gathered by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Classroom teachers play a critical role in intervening in bullying behavior displayed in schools and their attention to positive classroom climate can be a significant mitigating factor to bullying patterns.

Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment in Our Nation’s Classrooms is designed to support classroom teachers, other educators, and support personnel to reduce instances of bullying behavior and to build a supportive classroom climate in which bullying is less likely to occur. Building on the work of the successful first edition of this resource, this newly revised edition integrates the latest insights and strategies in this constantly emerging field of study.
