A study on bullying by the University of British Columbia, based on 490 students (half female,
half male) in Grades 8-10 in a BC City in the winter of 1999, showed:
• 64% of kids had been bullied at school
• 12% were bullied regularly (once or more a week)
• 40% tried to intervene
• 64% considered bullying a normal part of school life
Bullying is not a normal part of life. Bullying hurts everyone!
