How are different groups, such as ethnic minorities, asylum seekers and disabled pupils, affected by bullying?

243 Hindu, Indian Muslim and Pakistani children in England were asked about bullying in school (see Eslea and Mukhtar, 2000). The results were alarming, with 57% of boys and 43% of girls answering that they had been bullied that term. The level of bullying among the three different groups was more or less the same. It emerged that it was just as likely for the children to be bullied by other Asian pupils from a different ethnic group as it was to bullied by white children. It was uncommon for children to be bullied by others in the same ethnic group.
