From the awesome team at Good News Network. Bullying has gone down for grade students. There are three main stats to pull from this:

  • Bullying rates were as high as 29% but steadily dropped until it fell below 10%
  • 1%-2% drop in students doing the bullying themselves
  • 23% fewer students witnessed bullying while at school

All across the board, this is nice to see. I was bullied when I was in school. I simply took matters into my own hands to…”eliminate” the problem. Ahem. But, sure, it’s good to see the efforts from schools to better manage what was a growing problem are working out. So, the next time you hear about another bully incident, just remember, overall, it’s not that bad.
