“Each of us deserves the freedom to pursue our own version of happiness. No one deserves to be bullied.”
— Barack Obama
Bullying is a global issue many students face in diverse forms across the world. Anti-bullying interventions that are not grounded in the acts of recognizing and managing emotions are ineffective. Therefore Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in education can play a vital role in addressing bullying in schools and beyond. The 10th edition of the Transforming Education Newsletter
commemorates the upcoming
‘International Day against Violence and Bullying at School including Cyberbullying’
— with an article authored by Dr. Nandini Chatterjee Singh, Dr. Neelima Chopra, and Renuka Rautela
from UNESCO MGIEP in the .ed Magazine — a quarterly curated issue-based digital magazine for educators.
SEL includes a range of skills recognizing and managing emotions, empathy, compassion, mindfulness, and critical inquiry. Empathetic children — exhibit compassion and positivity— effectively counter bullying in schools and beyond. Read this
