One in five middle and high school students experience some type of bullying and it’s not much different at Sturgeon Bay’s TJ Walker Middle School, according to guidance counselor Heidi Bader. Bader says each instance of bullying is subject to that particular child, no two cases can be treated the same way.
A study conducted by the National Center for Education cites spitting, shoving, name calling and being made the subject of rumors as common types of bullying.
Bader says the Sturgeon Bay school district constantly works to prevent bullying and cyber bullying in all schools.
