OKC School Officials Explain Bullying Versus Conflict

Posted: Updated:

We're hearing more about kids being pushed too far, pushed to violence or even taking their own lives.

It often stems from bullying in the classroom, playground or through social media. But school officials say there is a difference between bullying and conflict.

The state has a standard definition of bullying and schools adopt a policy that sticks to that law. School officials say bullying is repetitive, threatening and ongoing behavior.

In bullying, it could involved the same child and several different victims. Conflict is a one time incident that is often solved by bringing the students together to talk about the problem.
