Bully Facts

Posted on June 5, 2009

A study on bullying by the University of British Columbia, based on 490 students (half female, half male) in Grades 8-10 in a B.C. city in the winter of 1999, showed:

»64 per cent of kids had been bullied at school.

»12 per cent were bullied regularly (once or more a week).

»13 per cent bullied other students regularly (once or more a week).

»72 per cent observed bullying at school at least once in a while.

»40 per cent tried to intervene.

»64 per cent considered bullying a normal part of school life.

»61-80 per cent said bullies are often popular and enjoy high status among their peers.

»25-33 per cent said bullying is sometimes OK and/or that it is OK to pick on losers.

»20-50 per cent said bullying can be a good thing (makes people tougher, is a good way to solve problems, etc.).
