Schools need a strong commitment from their principals, as well as clear guidance for teachers, other school employees, and students, if they are to going to successfully counter bullying on their campuses, a report concludes.

The report was published by the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing—a nonprofit affiliation of law-enforcement leaders, researchers, and university officials—and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Justice. It suggests that schools whose principals take an active interest in reducing bullying generally have less of a problem with such behavior. The report also says that schools need to develop policies that address indirect bullying, such as rumor mongering and social exclusion.
