Bullying Prevention and School Safety

Bullying presents one of the greatest health risks to children, youth, and young adults in U.S. society today. School safety, including the prevention is bullying, is a top national priority and a key area of academic research.


AERA has a longstanding commitment to raising awareness of research around this issue. Since 2010, AERA has produced information and resources necessary in combatting bullying throughout the nation. The AERA report Prevention of Bullying in Schools, Colleges, and Universities: Research Report and Recommendations presents practical short-term and long-term recommendations to address bullying of children and youth. Released in April 2013, the report stems from the work of a blue-ribbon AERA task force. Learn more
