The Culture of Bullying in Middle School.
Unnever, James D.; Cornell, Dewey G.
Journal of School Violence, v2 n2 p5-27 2003
Study assessed the nature and extent of student attitudes toward bullying. Data from surveys of over 2,400 students in six middle schools indicated that a culture of bullying was pervasive among middle school students. Students believed that, in most cases, neither classmates nor teachers would intervene to stop bullying. Most students denied that they would join in bullying a classmate and expressed some degree of empathy for victims. (SM)
