Nearly one in three school students get some level of bullying between the grades of 6-10. Bullying does not just happen inside the school though. Bullying is not always something that occurs during childhood. Suicide rates are high because of bullying.Suicide rates from bullying often come from all different kinds of bullying.
Why does bullying happen?
Bullying happens because people are different. They may get bullied because they wear glasses. They could be less popular than other sudents. If you are under or overweight you get bullied mainly because they are over weight. Thats a big one because now every one has to be skiny to be liked. People with different races or religion get bullied. If they have a disability they get bullied too.
