Harassment is linked to 75% of school shootings in america. Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying. Only 1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4 percent of the time. 56 percent of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school. 1 out 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying.
It is sick to think that only 4% of teachers will intervene if they see bullying going on. We should get that number up to 100% so that kids will feel more safe at school. 56% of students will witness some kind of bullying but most of them will not talk because they are afraid of being the next victim.
