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

In the early 1990s, over 1,000 secondary school children from 2 schools in London and 1 in Glasgow were asked about bullying. Surprisingly, the reports of bullying from ethnic minority children were not higher than the reports from children from the ethnic majority. However, there was a big difference when children were asked if they thought that generally, ethnic minority children were bullied more than children from the ethnic majority. Many more children from ethnic minority groups felt this was true than ethnic majority children.
