CBS Dallas reports on a study that looks into the effectiveness of anti-bullying programs. The author of the study expected to find that anti-bullying programs actually help curb bullying. He was shocked by what he found out.
The study concluded that students at schools with anti-bullying programs might actually be more likely to become a victim of bullying. It also found that students at schools with no bullying programs were less likely to become victims.
The results were stunning for Jeong. “Usually people expect an anti-bullying program to have some impact — some positive impact.”
The student videos used in many campaigns show examples of bullying and how to intervene. But Jeong says they may actually teach students different bullying techniques — and even educate about new ways to bully through social media and texting.
Jeong said students with ill intentions “…are able to learn, there are new techniques [and gain] new skills.” He says students might see examples in videos and then want to try it.
According to Jeong, some programs even teach students how to bully without leaving evidence behind. “This study raises an alarm,” he said. “There is a possibility of negative impact from anti-bullying programs.”
We are devolving as a society. We are unlearning what our ancestors fought hard to learn and pass on through time to us.
We used to have things figured out. They were called “values.” They were simple and obvious. God was above us, beyond us, and held us accountable for what we do. Marriage was a union between one man and one woman, period, for the purpose of raising children to become the next generation of adults. Sports and play trained our minds and bodies for the greater conflicts, triumphs and disappointments that adult life would bring our way. Work was good. Playing the system for selfish gain was bad. The best solution to bullying was a well-timed and well-place fist in the bully’s face.
We’ve unlearned all of that and much more. The consensus on all of it, everything that made up our civilization, has broken down.
Liberals have systematically torn it all down and are replacing it with nothing meaningful, nothing useful, nothing good, nothing that has any chance of lasting beyond the next irritating, bully-driven political debate.
No good can come of this.
