Too often we see this type of behavior among leaders in our community, and this sends a message that bullying is justifiable. My husband’s supervisor at work was very condescending, verbally abusive, and used intimidation as a continual scare tactic. When my husband reported this behavior to the director of his company, it was my husband who was stripped of his...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

A recent letter discussed bullying in public schools (“Don’t ignore bullying,” August 9). As an educator who has witnessed intimidation in both private religious and public schools, I believe that to effectively address this issue we must understand that we are a culture of aggressors and intimidators. Adults model offensive behaviors daily.

I understand that schools cannot follow up every report of bullying, and that some kids will grow out of it, but research shows that 40 percent of the boys identified as bullies in grades six through nine had three or more arrests by the age of 30. We have to find a better way to help bullies in the...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.
