Bullying No. 80; March 2011Click here to download and print a PDF version of this document. Bullying is a common experience for many children and adolescents. Surveys indicate that as many as half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years, and at least 10% are bullied on a regular basis. Bullying behavior can be physical or verbal. Boys tend to use physical intimidation or threats, regardless of the gender of their victims. Children who are bullied experience real suffering that can interfere with their social and emotional development, as well as their school performance. Children and adolescents who bully thrive on controlling or dominating others. If you suspect your child is bullying others, it's important to seek help for him or her as soon as possible. If you suspect your child may be the victim of bullying ask him or her to tell you what's going on. It's also important to respond in a positive and accepting manner.

Professional Ethics Introduction Top The debate concerning the ethics of education that took place in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century has gained renewed, worldwide interest in the past two decades. The contemporary debate targets two overlapping sides of the role morality plays in education: the moral behaviour of the teacher and the morality children learn in school. In 2001, Education International (EI), officially entered this debate when the Declaration on Professional Ethics (DPE) was adopted by EI’s 3rd World Congress held in Jomtien, Thailand. The DPE is mainly intended as a blueprint for EI affiliates' own guidelines. Its objectives are: to raise consciousness about the norms and ethics of the teaching profession; to help increase job satisfaction in education; to enhance status and self-esteem, and; to increase respect for the profession in communities. Policy Top The EI Declaration on Professional Ethics represents the core values of the teaching profession itself. Studies:
