Are there differences between Scotland's regions?

Key statement

Unfortunately, there have only been a few Scottish studies of bullying, and it seems that none of these has provided information about the differences between the Scottish regions.

Comment

It may well be that, because Scotland is such a small country, there are no major differences between different regions or local authority areas. Certainly, in my own 1989 research (see SCRE Spotlight 23) in 10 Scottish secondary schools, geographical location was not a significant factor which could explain the wide variations in the incidence of bullying between schools. In one case, two schools very close to each other showed such big variations.

Most research points to bullying being a universal phenomenon, which occurs in all schools in all parts of the world. Any differences are more likely to be explained by the way that different schools handle the problem, rather than the mere accident of geographical location.
