CPHA Safe School Study
Bully-victim problems, sexual harassment and racial discrimination are major public health concerns in Canada’s elementary, middle and high schools. Research indicates that these peer relationship problems are commonplace, yet school-based programs have no common standards, little consistency, and lack rigorous evaluation. The current study is part of a multi-pronged national anti-bullying strategy funded by the National Crime Prevention Strategy. Key objectives of this CPHA project include the development and testing of a toolkit for the evaluation of school-based programs and the publication of standards for quality school programs.
