Bullying has been a problem in schools for years, and in the past few years it's become the worry of parents as social media makes it harder for kids to leave bullies behind.
But new research says that peer mediation can be the most effective way to fight bullying. The University of Vermont is holding a workshop this week for educators to learn more about what they can do in their schools.
Annie Murray-Close is organizing that workshop she says peer mediation is inexpensive and effective way to fight bullying in many different age groups.
Murray-Close talks with VPR's Peter Biello about how peer mediation works.
