Bullying By Brandon talbot and matt lemerise

Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year. Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying.
1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4% of the time.
Over 67% of students believe that schools respond poorly to bullying, with a high percentage of students believing that adult help is infrequent and ineffective.
As boys age they are less and less likely to feel sympathy for victims of bullying. In fact they are more likely to add to the problem than solve it
1 in 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying.
Physical bullying increases in elementary school, peaks in middle school and declines in high school. Verbal abuse, on the other hand, remains constant.
Kids who are bullied have a hard time standing up for themselves. They think the kid who bullies them is more powerful than they are. Bullying can make them have problems in school
Nearly 43% of kids have been bullied online. 1 in 4 has had it happen more than once.
90% of teens who have seen social-media bullying say they have ignored it. 84% have seen others tell cyber bullies to stop.
Children who are obese are more likely to be bullied. Additionally, overweight and obese girls are more likely to be physically bullied
We should help to decrease the number of people who get bullied in the world
