According to a new study, bullying among students is on the decline. Research shows that over the last 10 years there has been less bullying in schools and hundreds of thousands of fourth through twelfth graders surveyed say they’ve dealt with less bullying personally.
“We found that bullying and related behaviors were decreasing, which indicated improvements in student behaviors and school climate,” explains study lead author Tracy Evian Waasdorp.
Researchers say the decline could be because of policy changes, as well as more awareness of the issue. There’s always more work to be done, especially in cyber bullying, but let’s be glad that at least kids aren’t being as cruel to each other at school.
