Bullying_Statistics_Escalate_Blog.jpgWhen we first began educating students in schools on bullying in 2006:

-1 in 10 students were bullied

 

TODAY According to a report from the National Education Association bullying has escalated. Now:

-1 out of 3 students in grades 6-10 are bullied

-6 out of 10 teenagers are bullied regularly in school

 

These Statistics are based on 2004-2007 Reports:

-Most bullying occurs on breaks, before or after school

-9 out of 10 LBGT are bullied 

-Students interviewed about bullying felt that school officials acted poorly to bullying

-Girls who are bullied are 8 times more likely to commit suicide

-Boys who are bullied are 4 times more likely to commit suicide

-1 teen commits suicide every 30 minutes due to bullying

-Bullies are actually more at risk for being violent to family members and committing suicide

-Suicide is one of the top 3 leading causes of death among teenagers

 

Did you know that...

-50% of Bullying can be prevented

-If things keep going like they have been more we will see bullying continue to escalate and young people continue to commit suicide and murder others

-Students need a Change--we cannot keep doing things the same

-Our workshops have been proven to bring about change in 89% of students overall

-In our workshops/assemblies we offer help, healing, and a solution for all: targets, bystanders and bullies
