The focus for a lot of groups now is to teach kids what to do when they see students getting bullied. Tell them what they should do about it. Teach them why they should stand up and how to go about doing do in the right ways. There are now plenty of sites dedicated to this topic as well and most schools have a complete no tolerance policy for bullies. Teaching people how to react is a step in the right direction.
