This discussion paper explores four hypotheses related to the potential correlation
between the variables of bullying, literacy and school engagement in the Canadian youth
population. Literature reviews, data base searches, and interviews with experts were
undertaken to accomplish this objective. An action plan for further research is proposed.
This paper is followed by another CPHA project which identifies best practices for anti-
bullying programs, develops outcome tools for testing in four Canadian sites, and
analyzes data from these sites.
