This was a great visual about statistics of bullying. 

-28% of students ages 12-18 were bullied in 2008/2009 school year.

-Different forms of bullying. Made fun of, rumors, pushing, threatening, cyberbullying, excluded, forced, and even property destroyed. 

-It mentions how people who are bullied are more liekly to have deppression symptoms, harm themselves, and suicidal thoughts.

This article touches on a few very relevant issues besides the one of bullying and is worth reading if you are considering a BYOD approach.
