The Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) said there is more bullying and harassment in Mexico than in any of its member countries. The Senate will implement policies and concrete actions to combat and reverse violence in the schools.

During the presentation of the book “¡Ya basta! Acabemos con el bullying” (“Enough! It’s Time to End Bullying”) by Cristina Jáuregui, Human Rights Commission President Angélica de la Peña Gómez said the Senate will promote several actions to stop bullying in schools.

The first action is to define public and education policies to follow up on the implementation of anti-bullying measures; second, establish a hotline for bullying victims; third, strengthen regulations of TV programs with violent content, as well as publicity campaigns discouraging violence, especially violence against women.

The government wants to address this phenomenon as soon as possible, but society needs to recognize it exists, De la Peña Gómez said.

She explained that one of the causes of violence in schools is that the subject of ethics and civic education was removed from the syllabus of elementary and secondary schools. The current generation of parents don’t have the tools to teach values to their children, she said.

Jáuregui said her book seeks to promote an educational system that promotes peace. She also hopes to reverse Mexico’s position as the top country in bullying, according to OECD statistics.
