Bullying Statistics

"People who show anger rather than sadness are boosting their status within a group, according to four studies by Larissa Tiedens at Stanford University. Not only did observers support angry politicians, as opposed to ones expressing sadness, but they also assigned a higher salary to a job candidate who said he was angry. Being angry creates an impression of competence, and that leads to higher status."
- Psychology News, Jan.11, 2001

"Being bullied is not just an unpleasant rite of passage through childhood," said Duane Alexander, M.D., director of the NICHD. "It's a public health problem that merits attention. People who were bullied as children are more likely to suffer from depression and low self esteem, well into adulthood, and the bullies themselves are more likely to engage in criminal behavior later in life."
- National Institue of Child Health & Human Development, April 24, 2001

According to the latest poll, thirty-two percent of parents fear for their child’s physical safety when the child is at school. Thirty-nine percent of parents with a child in grade six or higher are more likely to say they fear for their child’s safety. Twenty-two percent of parents whose children are in grade five or lower fear for their child’s safety. (Parents Not Overly Concerned About School Environments for Their Children, Gallup News Service, 2001)

Though recent studies show that as many as seventy-five percent of children have been victims of bullying during their school careers, about half of parents in this survey see bullying as no problem for their children.
