Stand Up to Bullying Special Report

Bullying is a topic that both kids and adults have been talking about a lot recently. Kids are being bullied at school and online, and parents and teachers are working to stop what some call a "bullying epidemic."

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. For Safe Schools Week, which is October 17-21, the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps kicks off a continuing series about bullying prevention. Kid Reporters have talked to their teachers, parents of kids who have been bullied, singers, songwriters, and actors who are taking part in bullying prevention programs, and authors about how to keep bullying out of kids' lives.

This Stand Up to Bullying Special Report will grow in the weeks and months ahead, so check back for more stories throughout the year. And head over to the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps Blog to be part of the conversation about bullying. Is it happening to you or your friends? Is it going on in your school? Tell us your story, and share your experiences and ideas with other kids.
