This senior capstone project identifies the relationship between students’ learning and bullying, and how educators/parents can learn to identify signs of bullying and how to prevent it. Through the use of literature review and two anonymous interviews, one with a parent of a child who has been bullied and one with a person who has personally been bullied themselves, the result findings showed that bullying has a significant amount of negative effects in students education and overall well-being. However, the relationship between bullying and its effects on students' education and well-being can be complex as identifying the root causes of bullying and having access to the bullying is harder with technology advancing everyday online. This project aims to educate teachers and parents on signs of bullying and how to help students who are involved in bullying.
