i doubt that a person can be hated by everyone in their class, but lets say it does happen then i would have them spend their extra time or even some lessons in a different classroom with professionals that deal with this and then hopefully that can increase their social skills enough for them to initiate in group activities. and if that doesnt work then ive tried, nothing more i can do.


But what if the other kids that are the problem and not the one being single out ?

Sometimes is not the one individual that is the problem but the other people are the problem. How will somebody fix that ? I can only see it being fix by moving the kid to a friendly class.

All you do with that is make the problem worse. If the kids are old enough to understand what they are doing and that is the problem kids are kids after all. You explain to them as a group as to what they are all doing wrong. You all need to get more folks adults involved than yourself to fix this problem.

moving them to a new class could work although it could also affect the victim on a psychological level due to the fact that transitioning into a new classroom can increase stress. as well as this, if the student has learning difficulties i would expect that the child is also in the lowest bracket of education and therefore the only place to move them would be up, this could be too much of a change in learning speed that they cant cope and i would personally rather have a bullied educated child than a uneducated happy one as in the future the lack of educational skills could cause further bullying for the rest of their lives.

Another is the first thing I thought of seeing this thread! I was thinking "Just leave it alone, don't mess with the countermeasures!"

Treating him/her differently isn't going to help in any way. Sometimes you need to just leave things alone and let them resolve themselves. Unless the "bullying" becomes physical or obvious, you really cannot do anything. Otherwise, you will just look like you're favoring this one student which will only cause more animosity.

Well, the most I could probably do is try to prevent him from being bullied. You can't exactly force other kids to actually interact with him. That's the sad truth. If the bullying could not be stopped, I'd probably put him in a different class and inform his parents of the issue.

Sucks but that's life. If the kids are not breaking any rules and the one being picked on doesn't bring it up my hands are tied. I could maybe ask for a parent-teacher meeting to discuss the student who is picked on but that's as far as the code of ethics will let any teacher go I'm afraid.

Scolding the rest of the class or protecting the student would lead to unintended consequences.

It's pretty hard to get a group of more than 4 individuals to devise a plan, agree with it's aspects,and then have the discipline to follow it through to fruition.25 to 40 people?Children with varying degrees of attention spans?Very unlikely.

There really isn't anything the teacher could do. Even if the teacher does something, wouldn't the shunned kid think that their space is being invaded and that the teacher should just leave them alone? The last thing a kid would want is to think that people are pitying them for being excluded, which will not lead to favorable results.

The rest of the class probably doesn't know what's the best way to communicate with the kid, and the kid doesn't know how to go about communicating with the rest of them that wouldn't seem forced.

That's just me rambling, but I hope I got some points across.
