Abstract
The object aim of this study was to examine how the people that work on schools look upon their school programs against bullying.

Complaints towards schools that do not accomplish to follow the program against bullying... (More)
The object aim of this study was to examine how the people that work on schools look upon their school programs against bullying. We also want to compare the circumstance and the differences between Olweus, an evidence-based practice, highly structured program, and other existing methods of program. Schools nowadays are by law obligated to work actively against discrimination, insults and bullying. Schools should also work parallel with a plan of equality and according to the law. As the governmental demands for schools’ responsibilities towards the students increase, the demand grows from the parents that the schools follow the rules and programs. Complaints towards schools that do not accomplish to follow the program against bullying have increased the last couple of years. Media shows statistics on how many students that have experienced bullying, it also shows connections between bullying, suicides, heavy violence and crime. We have also had the opportunity to interview eight person’s people that work at a school with programs against bullying. Five persons work with Olweus program, while three work with Farsta och Gemensamma Bekymmers method. From our qualitative interviews we collected our material that includes keywords like implement, organization, recourses and lack of time. From these keywords we have been able to make a comparing study of what the eight persons we interviewed seems to have in common when it comes to their needs, benefits and problems concerning bullying and anti bullying programs. Our study shows that most of our respondents’ value management that shows engagement and takes part of the school meetings.They also thinks it is important for the management to clearly express all changes. We have come to the conclusion that the most common factors why schools do not follow their programs against bullying are the lack of resources and the lack of time. Most of the schools that took part in our study have recently downsized their staff. This has resulted in a daily struggle for the staff to find time for other priorities other than teaching. It is not hard to guess that the staff in this situation would choose to teach the main part of the class instead of having a meeting with only one or a few students. (Less)
