Bullying is a Serious Issue
Bullying is aggressive behavior that is intentional and that involves an imbalance of power. Most often, it is repeated over time.
School bullying takes on many forms, and it is done by both girls and boys. A recent U.S. study shows that 17 percent of all students reported having been bullied "sometimes" or more often. This amounts to almost one in five students.
