Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Impact of a Bullying Prevention Program in a Middle School Setting: Bullying Occurrences and Academic Outcomes
by Mckenney, Krystal, Ed.D., Trevecca Nazarene University, 2020, 91; 27960788
Abstract (Summary)

This study aimed to examine the effectiveness of a school anti-bullying program in reducing bullying incidents and the overall impact on the academic outcomes in middle schools. The study was conducted at a Tennessee suburban middle school and utilized interviews, discipline referrals and student TNReady scores.

In this study, both qualitative and quantitative data was collected. Therefore, both sets of data had to be analyzed to uncover trends and patterns for the various observations made by the researcher. The combination of both approaches was a good move because it gave the researcher wider latitude in examining the variables. The study shows that the anti-bullying program is an important step not only in protecting students but also improving academic outcomes.
