RIDE ALONG – Weekly Stand #20

The bus can be a tough place for a student who gets picked on. According to a 2012 study, almost 10% of school bullying occurs on school buses. And a lot of the time, adults are unaware. If you know someone who is having trouble on the bus, take it upon yourself this week to make sure the bus driver or teachers know what’s happening. You can try phrases like, “You may not know this, but ___ gets bullied at the back of the bus every day on the way to school. Can we get assigned seats on the bus?” If it feels safe, it can also help to sit with the person who has been bullied to make it harder for others to be mean to them.
