|Every child deserves an education free from discrimination, bullying, harassment, intimidation and violence. The ERASE (Expect Respect and A Safe Education) Bullying website, www.erasebullying.ca, is here to help.
This provincial website includes online access for youth to report bullying, as well as, a wealth of information for youth, parents and educators about bullying.
ERASE Bullying builds on the Province's Safe, Caring and Orderly Schools Strategy (2004), which focussed on creating schools where students are free from harm, where clear expectations of acceptable behaviour are held for all members of the school community, and where there is a sense of connectedness. ERASE Bullying will help ensure every child feels safe, accepted and respected, regardless of their gender, race, culture, religion or sexual orientation.
ERASE Bullying also builds on effective programs already in place and will ensure there are consistent policies and practices across all 60 school districts, backed by strong community partnerships and support.
Bullying has a serious effect on children and youth, and must be dealt with. Preventing or dealing with bullying isn't the responsibility of just one person - it takes a whole community approach!
