Bullying is the most prevalent form of low - level aggression in schools today and if left unchecked, can lead to more serious forms of aggression. Consequently, an essential aspect of school aggression prevention is the identification and implementation of interventions and strategies designed to prevent or reduce bullying in schools. In this article are discussed expression of bullying, prevalence rates, and the consequences of bullying for the bully, the victim, and the school community. Bullying prevention strategies that target multiple levels (individual, classroom, and school) are provided, and the best practices guidelines for implementing bullying prevention programs in schools are discussed.
