19 - 23 November is Anti-Bullying Week, an annual event established in 2006 by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. The theme for this year's Week is We're Better without Bullying, with a focus on how bullying can impact on achievement at school. Already a piece of research commissioned for the event has made headlines by suggesting that some children hide their talents for fear of being bullied, while Eurydice has released a new briefing entitled Strategies to Counter Bullying, which examines how other countries tackle the issue.
