Researchers at the University of Kansas are preparing to implement a Finnish anti-bullying programme called KiVa in schools in Lawrence, Kan., as early as the 2012-13 school year. The pilot programme addresses bullying through a holistic strategy that focuses on the peer environment and includes even those who are not victims or perpetrators of bullying. One study found that bullying incidences in one school year dropped 50% after schools in Finland created the programme.
