Anti-Bullying Programs Causing More Bullying, Not Less

One thing I’ve noticed in our degenerated and morally bankrupt society is that no matter what is intended for good will soon be used for bad.  In many cases, programs designed to prevent something from happening only help to instruct others how to do the wrong thing even better.

Case in point is a new study of anti-bullying programs used in the public schools.  They are designed to teach kids what not to do to each other and why it’s wrong, but the programs may actually be backfiring and teaching kids new and better ways to bully or give them ideas what they can do next.

Seokjin Jeong is a criminologist at the University of Texas, Arlington.  He’s been going through data collected from 7,000 students from every state in the country and what he has found should cause many educators to reconsider their anti-bullying methods.  Expecting to come up with statistical data that showed the positive impact anti-bullying programs were having in the schools, he ended with data indicating they are actually having a negative impact on the students.

Many of the programs use videos showing examples of bullying and what they should do to prevent that from happening to them or others.  But like so many other well-meaning things today, some students that are bent on bullying are using these videos for new ideas or even as means of discovering new ways so as not to be detected and caught bullying.

Commenting on his findings, Jeong said:

“Usually people expect an anti-bullying program to have some impact — some positive impact.”

“There is a possibility of negative impact from anti-bullying programs.”

“A very disappointing and a very surprising thing. Our anti-bullying programs, either intervention or prevention does not work.”

If someone wants to study statistics, let them study the rise in bullying and other crimes committed by teens over time and then compare it with the removal of the Bible, God, Jesus, Prayer and the Ten Commandments from the public schools.  It all started in the early 1960s and has progressed since then.  We now have a generation of adults taught in the Godless publics schools raising a second and even third generation of kids taught in the same Godless schools.  They are being raised to reject everything the Bible teaches, including its morality and values.  It’s these generations that are responsible for who we have in the White House and Congress and why America is going down the drain faster and faster each day.

If educators really want to stop bullying in their schools, they need to start teaching the morals, values and life principles that God gave us in the Bible.  Our Founding Fathers understood that and even had Congress commission the printing and distribution of Bibles to be used in schools and homes throughout the newly won nation.  The reason we study history is to avoid the mistakes of others and protect the successes of others.  Today’s history being taught has been rewritten in such a manner as to glorify the mistakes made in the past and demonize the successes of God fearing men and women.  As long as that remains the norm, bullying in schools is destined to increase and more students will take their lives because of it.
