However, these programs are costly, in need of a staff and materials, and often schools cannot afford to sponsor the chapter. Often they are not run well and students do not grasp the seriousness of the topic. Some believe a focused week, run by the school, is the solution. Ribbon Weeks have been effective in educating students on the misuse of drugs and alcohol, suicide prevention and the environment. Those in favor of awareness programs think a focused effort will end some instances of bullying. Should Those That Bully Be Removed from School? Sometimes the solution to the problem is to remove the student from the situation. Some argue that bullying is a violation of the safe school environment and should be treated as if the student brought a weapon on to campus. Others think that the punishment of expulsion is too severe. They believe that education and discussion can alter the bullying behavior. Those in favor of expelling bullies from school want those students who have been bullied to feel safe at school. The Situational Essay Describe a circumstance where a student is being bullied by a class member. Have students write an essay that outlines what actions they would take to stop the bullying. Some examples include: "A friend confides in you that she is being bullied by a classmate. How would you react to this situation? Describe the necessary steps you would take to ensure that your friend felt free from the bullying." "You enter the restroom to discover a student being bullied and another student filming the encounter with his cell phone. What actions would you do to help end the bullying? What punishment would be appropriate for this type of bullying?" Read more: Persuasive Essay Topics on Bullying in Schools | eHow.com

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
