October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month
Statistics show that one in five students experience some form of bullying. Once considered just a part of growing up, bullying is now seen as a serious problem in schools nationwide. In 2006, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center initiated a campaign to raise awareness of bullying prevention. In recent years, increased use and access to the internet has led to a new form of bullying: cyberbullying.
