How To Act If You Think A Teacher Is Bullying Someone
What should you do if you think a teacher is bullying someone?
If you feel that a teacher is bullying someone, it's really important that you speak up. Lots of people that are bullied by teachers don't feel that they can really say, so if you feel strong enough to say that they are bullying, it's important that you act as a champion for other young people. It's important to choose carefully who you talk to about the bullying. Make sure that the person you speak to about it will be independent and will support you, listen to you, take what you say seriously and help to make changes that need to be made to the teacher's behaviour. If you do talk to somebody in your school about how a teacher's behaving, you can ask them to keep it confidential so they won't tell the teacher that it was you that made the complaint. Start the meeting by saying that you'd like it to be confidential and then you can explain what the problem is without worrying it coming back on yourself.
