ABSTRACT
The purpose of our study was to determine the prevalence and source of bullying in schools and to propose multi-institutional prevention and intervention strategies for managing this behavior. The research was based on both qualitative and quantitative information obtained from a survey administered to junior and senior high school students in a southeast Texas school district. The self-report survey was designed to identify specific bullying incidences experienced by the students. Reducing bullying in schools is an important concern of parents, educators, and law enforcement. The findings of our study indicated that adolescents may engage in bullying behavior due to influences encountered in schools, home environments, and interaction with peer groups. In our study, the implications regarding the reduction of bullying behaviors by adolescents are discussed in terms of the impact of family involvement and after school and community programs which include capable adults who will hold individuals accountable for their actions.
