Heres some info I found on bullying. It is a real serious problem today.
-90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying.
-1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4% of the time.
-56% of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school.
-according to bullying statistics, 1 out of every 10 students who drop out of school does so because of repeated bullying.
-1 out of 20 students has seen a student with a gun at school.
These are scary facts people! We must do something to change this!
I feel that kids with high self-esteem would solve this problem. Project Self-Esteem is designed to do just this. Lets teach this in schools!
