Students in Jackie Gilbert’s Principles of Marketing class at MTSU have spent the semester studying five forms of bullying in an effort to share them with students at Oakland High. Dan Olweus, creator of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, defines bullying as a person being “exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending himself or herself.” Cyberbullying is when those actions take place electronically, either through a cell phone or computer. Gilbert and Oakland High Principal Bill Spurlock agreed to partner on the project, which covers five sessions over a two-week period. The program could eventually expand to other high schools.
