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.

I agree with roberto and nick bullying is a serious problem. These poor kids are getting bullied everyday. I think we should all unite and form the ABLA. The anti bullying league of america. Jay will you lead us?

Wow! I cannot get over that that many people are bullied each month. That is just phenomenal! I cannot imagine what it is like to be bullied, I mean, being made fun of and being pushed around in and out of school. I would just not be able to take that each day. It is a definite problem that needs to be taken care of and greatly reduced before someones life is at stake.

I heard that some kids that are bullied carry a gun to school to stop the bullying and they end up getting arrested. I think these kids need to learn not to be scared to stand up for themselves.
