School Bullying: Its Influences on the Academic Performance of the Basic Education Students

Abstract

Bullying has already been a pervasive problem across Asia. It has been noticed as a school nuisance causing harm to students that could potentially affect their physical and psychological conditions. Most of its victims are powerless and taciturn. As observed, students who are bullied cannot concentrate well in the class. The grades may be a basis or a sign that one is bullied. At first, they just hide the pain they feel. But later, they make excuses, alibis, and complains just to get out of the school. As a result, the students have missed a lot of school which can affect their academic standing. On the contrary, some students become bully at school because they might being bullied at home or in other place. A bullied student, may, at the demand of his own bully become a bully to another person.In the light of the foregoing, this research paper is aimed at determining the bullying behaviors of the basic education students as well as its effects on their academic performance. It has the end view of creating a school bullying preventive program which is of big help in battling against the issue. It provides creative solutions which address the needs of the administrators, teachers, parents, bully, and bullied students, thereby, creating a safe and sound school environment.
