NEA’s Bully Free: It Starts With Me


The NEA Bullying Prevention Kit

Designed by educators for educators, this kit reflects the best available research on bullying prevention:.

Funded in part by the Gill Foundation.

"Bullying prevention: We’ve moved from denial to determination, now it’s time to deliver."

"I hope to never hear an educator or a parent or a Sunday School teacher say to a frightened bullied child, 'Just ignore it.' Schools that are seeing a decrease in bullying are not ignoring it.  They are acting."
--Lily Eskelsen Garcia, Fall 2014

 Every state has an anti-bullying policy, and 49 states have an anti-bullying law. Learn about your state’s anti-bullying policy or law here.
