The problem of school bullying is more and more concerned by the whole society. Governments and regions have different views and measures on school bullying. This paper analyzes two different texts from the United States and China. Text from the United States is an anti-bullying website established by the federal government of the United States. Text from China is a large-scale survey conducted by Chinese scholars in a Chinese city Xi'an, which to some extent reflects the current situation of bullying in China. The U.S. has gone further and deeper than China on bullying. Fifty states in the U.S. have passed anti bullying laws and the federal government has set up national websites. China has no such websites or special laws at present. The U.S. experience in anti-bullying can provide China with some inspiration.
