Oct. 7 is World Day of Bullying Prevention. What do you think can be done to prevent bullying in schools?

"Schools need to listen to the students. If they say there is a problem, the schools need to investigate it."

Joy Buikema, Princeton

"If the faculty see something going on no matter how big or small, they should stop it right away."

Katlyn Sanden, Wyanet

"It needs to start at the top. Teachers and administrators need to be a better example. Students mimic what they see at home and in school."

Whitney Tyne, Lake Thunderbird

"Schools need to teach kids the difference between teasing and bullying. The word bullying is overused."

Kelly Morris, Princeton

"I feel that it goes back to the golden rule — 'Treat others the way you want to be treated.' That should start from the home/parent."

Heather Mason, Princeton
