A Study of Bullying in the Middle School
Harris, Sandra; Petrie, Garth
NASSP Bulletin, v86 n633 p42-53 2002
This study describes the bullying behaviors reported by 198 students in grade 8 in two middle schools in the same southern city. Of the students, 92% reported observing some type of bullying at their school at least "sometimes." Nearly one half of the students did not tell anyone when they were bullied. Those who did report bullying were most likely to tell a friend or their mother. Less than 3% reported that they would tell a teacher. Findings also indicate that students perceived nearly 60% of teachers and more than 70% of administrators as "not interested" in reducing bullying on campuses.
