PublicPolicy on Bullying
Indubitably,there exists a standard and broad consensus that bullying is unlawfuland socially wrong. Therefore, it cannot be tolerated or condoned inall social quarters (Samuels,2014)Nonetheless, the sad reality is that bullying persists in both thePrimary and Secondary schools in America (U.S.Department of Education, 2014).The big problem is that bullying continues even among students withdisabilities. This paper will discuss in detail the American publicpolicy on bullying on students with disabilities.

Themany instances of students dropping out of school due to bullyingwere one way that the problem came to public awareness. The rate ofstudents missing school from the sixth grade to the tenth grade wasalso another factor that led to public concern behind the reason whythe school was seemingly becoming unbearable for students. The policyshould be developed to ensure that it provides a solution to thebullies. That is because bullying is psychological and the bulliesalso need to be helped as most of them result in bullying not becausethey like it but due to other psychological factors.
