Research can beat the bullies

22nd April 2005 at 01:00
* A pity that the Panorama programme failed to expose the reality of our sub-culture of anti-social behaviour. Blaming everything on schools is unjust, ignoring the fact that bullying does not only involve children and is not only the business of schools.

The root causes of anti-social behaviour among young people are poor adult examples, neglect and a slavish adherence to competitiveness.
