Online Submission
This monograph analyses the effects of bullying on school attendance among senior high school students in Ghana. A strong correlation is found between being bullied and having poor attendance. The effects of emotional problems and of peer friendships on this correlation are then examined. For both boys and girls, having emotional problems is associated with poor attendance while having friends is associated with good attendance. Gender differences appear as these relations interact for girls, but not for boys. For girls, increasing emotional problems, even for those who do not report being bullied incrementally affected their school attendance. (Contains 4 footnotes, 4 tables, and 2 figures.)
