Bullying Statistics 2014 and recent bullying percentages: There is no doubt that bullying is a problem in U.S. schools but just how much of a problem is it? The latest bullying statistics of 2014 reflect bullying in “real life” as well as cyber bullying. The numbers related to any bullying statistic are both shocking and disheartening. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) anti-bullying website Stopbullying.gov, some bullying actions are considered criminal, such as harassment or hazing; but “bullying” alone is not illegal. And recent news stories abound with tales of cyber bullying – where the target is harassed through social media or other technology – that have unfortunately resulted in victims’ suicides. The majority of bullying still takes place at school; 1 in 3 U.S. students say they have been bullies at school, according to the DHHS.
Don’t let your loved one become a shocking number in a bullying statistic. Remember statistics on bullying point to a real problem that must be addressed to change things.
