Comment

It is likely that children's attitudes towards bullying are changing as the subject is discussed more and more in schools. In 1990, bullying was rarely discussed in schools in Scotland and other English speaking countries. By 1996 most schools in the UK and Australia had adopted anti-bullying policies and the Australian study mentioned here seems to point to the fact that the majority of young people now think that bullying is wrong.
