Bullying among 9th Graders: An Exploratory Study
Harris, Sandy; Petrie, Garth; Willoughby, William
NASSP Bulletin, v86 n630 p3-14 2002
This study describes the bullying behaviors reported by 136 grade 9 students in two high schools in the same Southern city. Nearly 75% of students reported observing some type of bullying at their school. Bullied students were most apt to tell their mother or a friend about their experience, but rarely told a teacher or an administrator. Findings also suggest that the students surveyed did not perceive their teachers or administrators to be interested in reducing bullying. Recommendations to help school administrators reduce bullying are offered.
