There are around 60,000 kids every year who are being bullied in
Norwegian schools. This is some of the things coming from kids during
the 23 years we have had the Childrens Ombudsmans office.
So we went through, and tried to find out what has been done and
we had meetings with children all over the country. They said, the
time of random complaints must be over. We must create something
which can be anchored in the culture, deeply rooted. They said that
we have to strengthen the school democracy, increasing childrens
as well as parents' participation in school. And we need leadership.
This is not something I as a child should solve, yes conflict with
equal power I can solve. We have conflict mediation programs in
Norway and also Scotland, which are functioning well.
