All children deserve a safe and positive environment when they go to school. School officials must make sure that an appropriate bully-free environment is there for all kids.

I firmly believe that a strong emotional health and a positive self-image are key ingredients for overall success in life. If on a regular basis a child is concerned about having to deal with negative issues/events/incidents, it is simply not possible for the child to focus on the positive aspects of school and social life. For academic success of all students it is critical to maintain a safe and nurturing environment for all children.

When we talk about a safe environment for children we must include discussions about creating and maintaining an atmosphere in schools where ALL children can feel free to be themselves and learn most effectively at their own pace. If a child has to face negative environment on a regular basis, it can lead to long lasting negative impact far beyond the school years.

The focus for all schools should be on the fact that every child counts. The schools must be focused on developing and maintaining a culture that has three key objectives – acceptance of differences in people around you, being kind and respectful to others as opposed to negative behavior such as bullying, and focusing on self-acceptance so you can achieve success in life. If schools can focus on these three objectives, then they will be able to truly provide the education all children deserve.
