Abstract

School bullying is one of the major problems faced by most of the schools in Malaysia, whereby the case on bullying had increased from year to year. So far, there is no specific law or statute to punish the bullies. When bullying takes place, usually the bullies will be punished by their respective schools either by way of giving warning or detention class. Sometimes, the parents' of the bullies will be required to attend to school to discuss with
the teachers about the behaviour of their child. These measures seem to be ineffective as there are still a large number of cases on bullying reported currently. In order to reduce the number of cases on bullying, effective sanction must be adopted to
punish the bullies. Thus this research is conducted for the purpose of giving awareness to the public about the problem of school bullying and trying to find a solution to this matter. This study is conducted to gain the public perceptions relating to the problem of school bullying. The various opinions regarding the causes of school bullying and their suggestion on possible legal sanctions that can be adopted to punish the bullies are gathered by interviews and answering questionnaires. The causes of bullying are being asked because we believe that the solution to every problem can be found by examining the root of the problem. The opinions relating to possible legal sanctions are gathered
during the field work as we believe that public opinions are very important to be taken into consideration as the school bullying is the problem relating to the community itself.
