ABSTRACT
Highlights of this special issue on bullying are presented. The compendium of research reviewed and data presented set the stage for future research to attend to issues of definition, measurement, longitudinal methodology, prevention/intervention, policy, and recognition of important contexts for the occurrence and maintenance of bullying behavior. Data are presented to inform readers about current state and national policy and practices that have developed as a response to high profile youth violence thought to have its roots in bullying behavior. Finally, it is emphasized that future prevention and intervention efforts in American schools will depend on evidence-based practices that are grounded in a common definition of bullying.
