Physical, emotional, verbal, and now cyber bullying are an increasing problem in our nation’s schools and within our children’s social networks. How can we understand it? Community leaders and activists Gómez and Arroyo worked with children, teenagers, and parents—both the victims and the bullies—to put together this searing anthology of original essays, poetry, plays, and commentary on how bullying has affected their lives.
