One-third pupils ad­mit to bul­ly­ing

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Un­der one-third of school stu­dents have used vi­o­lence against a fel­low pupil, while two in three have wit­nessed bul­ly­ing, a re­cent sur­vey by the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry has found.

The study found that 29 per­cent of re­spon­dents ad­mit­ted to us­ing vi­o­lence either rarely or fre­quently against fel­low stu­dents, while 66 per­cent said they have never re­sorted to bul­ly­ing. Two in three stu­dents, or 65 per­cent, ad­mit­ted they have seen fel­low stu­dents be­ing bul­lied and 28 per­cent said they have never wit­nessed such an in­ci­dent. Nev­er­the­less, 70 per­cent re­sponded that they feel “safe” at their school, com­pared to just 5.5 per­cent who said they do not.

The study sur­veyed 3,682 ele­men­tary school stu­dents and 31,602 mid­dle and high school­ers by anony­mous elec­tronic ques­tion­naire.
