Bullying: The invisible canary | SmartBrief

Bullying: The invisible canary | SmartBrief | Beyond the Stacks | Scoop.it
Recently it was reported that 71% of schools in New York City recorded zero incidents of bullying for a school year.  I am sure similar statistics could be found in many other districts in our country. Recent national statistics on bullying, however, indicated that approximately 20% to 25 % of secondary-school students indicated that they were bullied 2 to 3 times per month. This means that a school hypothetically of 100 students should have approximately 400 incidents of bullying per year. How can such contradictorily sets of data be possible?

Study: Bullying persists in school, Reports of sex crime up

WASHINGTON (AP) -- One in every 5 middle and high school students has complained of being bullied at school and the number of reports of sexual assault on college campuses has more than tripled over the past decade, according to a federal study released Tuesday. "There are areas of concern in terms of bullying and rates of victimization being high," said Lauren Musu-Gillette, one of the authors of the report by the National Center for Education Statistics and the Justice Department. "We are seeing a long term decline, but we still want people to be paying attention to areas where rates are still high."
