ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the practice of bullying in schools with reference to a recent case of suicide by the student Fiona Pilkington. She says that serious and sustained programmes have helped to create safe environments for children and staff should be following carefully devised, tested and regularly reviewed anti-bullying policies. According to her, the telling of a story in itself will not change how people feel about risk, justice, and punishment.
