Blog July Theme: Bullying in Schools
This month we want to focus our attention on an important issue: bullying in schools. Whether it is physical violence, verbal attacks, or cyber bullying, such hurtful behavior can significantly lower students' performance in the classroom. To help us gain insight into this behavior, we took a look at studies conducted by researchers such as Charbel El Bcheraoui of the University of Washington and Dr. Ziad Al-Bitar of the University of Jordan. We also interviewed Nour El Assaad, the bright and determined founder of 'No Label,' a Beirut-based NGO aimed at raising awareness about bullying.
