Bullying, especially violent bullying, has declined dramatically in the past decade, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education.
The study, published last week in the journal Pediatrics, found that only about 13 percent of students reported being the victims of bullying in 2014, compared to nearly 29 percent in 2005. Less than 10 percent reported being violently bullied in 2014, either by a “push [or] shove,” or by a “hit, kick [or] slap.”
Both measures had been in the 20s the decade before.
