How many kids are bullied in a month
Bullying is a serious problem in schools around America. Kids all over are scared to go to school because of bullying. Kids are bullied for all different reasons including racial differences, perceived sexual orientation, learning disabilities, religious differences, sexual harassment and others. Sixty-six percent of kids are teased at least once a month, and almost one-third of kids are bullied once a month. six out of ten (60%) American teens witness bullying at least once a day and do nothing about it. For kids in between grades six and ten, nearly one sixth of those kids are bullied at least once in a year. Many have been bullied more than that though. that means that 3.2 million kids are bullied each day. The part that is even worse is that there are 3.7 million bullies out there. If we don't take control of bullying now it can lead to other serious issues with those kids who have been bullied.
