China's education ministry has launched an anti-bullying campaign for primary and middle schools across the country based on a recent guideline.

The guideline urged thorough investigations to find evidence of bullying and called for necessary measures to defuse potential bullying behaviors in schools.

Depending on the seriousness of the offense, students perpetrating bullying should be subjected to disciplinary actions, reprimanded, warned, or transferred to special schools, the guideline noted.

It also called for offering psychological counseling to bullying victims.

Schools are obliged to stop acts of bullying upon finding any such instances and contact the police in severe situations, the guideline added.

Schools should also offer in-depth moral, legal and mental health education, as well as special training for students to prevent campus bullying, the guideline said, adding that families should play a larger role in curbing bullying.
