How common is bullying?

The answers of over 4,000 children from 25 secondary schools in Keele, England revealed that in a week 70 pupils in a school with 1,000 were bullied in some way or another. When all the children in the study were asked about verbal bullying (name calling or unpleasant teasing) their answers were also alarming - 24 percent were bullied in this way 'often or very often', and another 28 percent of pupils suffered teasing and name calling 'sometimes'.
