Research shows that learning is dependent upon students feeling safe and secure, so preventing and counteracting bullying should be a high priority for any school leader. Written by an experienced, award-winning principal with a proven track record of bully prevention, this book integrates the research and knowledge on effective school leadership with the research and knowledge for effective bullying prevention. James Dillon describes the five paradigm shifts a school principal needs to lead in order to develop the schoolwide will for bully prevention. This book: - Explains why most anti-bullying efforts fail; - Offers professional development strategies for equipping school staff to implement anti-bullying policies; - Includes information on how to assess and improve overall school climate; - Describes how to involve all members of the school community, including parents

The book also provides additional useful information such as how to deliver effective presentations to get buy-in from community members and staff, how to collect and analyze data, and sample forms, online video clips, and case studies. An essential tool for any school leader, No Place for Bullying provides more than just the policies and the forms to implement an anti-bullying program—it provides the tools for inspiring the cultural shift necessary to truly combat bullying in schools.
