A WBI Affiliate asks for your help if you work in K-12 American schools:
Please complete this survey that is part of my Doctoral dissertation through Aurora University, Aurora, IL.
The topic is “ A Systems Approach to Workplace Bullying in the K-12 Public Education Setting”.
Participants are invited to complete the survey regarding their observations or experiences in any of the roles in workplace bullying in the school setting. The opportunity to participate in an interview (either in person or by phone) regarding the experiences is available by providing the information at the end of the survey. Non-American respondents are not eligible for an interview at this time.
Thank you for helping.

Bullying isn’t just a problem for middle school and high school students; bullying behavior continues into adulthood and is a concern in the workplace.
By Melissa Hincha-Ownby
Bullying is a major problem in schools across the country but if you thought that bullying ended once school ended, think again. Bullying behavior continues after adolescence and into adulthood, and workplace bullying is equally concerning. While there are many programs available to help educators stop bullying in schools, there are few resources available to businesses. However, the increased awareness of workplace bullying is helping bring about change as states are beginning to look at anti-bullying laws as a way to curb the issue.

Everyone already knows of the common stereotype, how bullies pick on the weakest kid on the playground. It is often used to justify the act of bullying itself, like a form of social Darwinism that makes it okay to commit acts of assault on another person. The Workplace Bullying Institute has found in its research that workplace bullies actually target the strongest, most capable employees. Particularly the ones who represent a threat to an incompetent manager’s own job. But a new CNN study shows this is also true of schoolyard bullies in their quest for social dominance.
This begs the question: do these kids grow up to be workplace bullies, or does the workplace make its own class of bullies? Tell us what you think in the comments section.
New York (CNN) — A new study commissioned by CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360°” found that the stereotype of the schoolyard bully preying on the weak doesn’t reflect reality in schools.
Instead, the research shows that many students are involved in “social combat” — a constant verbal, physical and cyber fight to the top of the school social hierarchy.
