Stopping the bully cycle
DeKALB – When a bullying incident comes to Tim Vincent’s attention, he and the staff at Clinton Rosette Middle School try to take a creative approach to the problem.
“Some kids, we can stop the bullying if we have them create a PowerPoint about the evils of bullying,” said Vincent, principal at Clinton Rosette in DeKalb. “Some kids, we can prevent it from happening again if we bring their parents in and we have a big conference.”
Vincent’s goal for his school’s “zero-tolerance” policy on bullying is to ensure that the offending student never bullies another person. Discipline, he added, is not about avenging the victim.
