Bully here, bully there, bully everywhere

The Bully Report; Trends in Bullying Pulled from Student Facebook Interactions, released by Common Sense Media (link below) sketches a frightening, although not surprising, picture of bullying.  The report reflected from more than 50,000 teens.  Nearly every student reported some bad experience with bullying.

At least one of the finding is worth emphasizing:  California, which has strong bullying policies,  ranks near the bottom in many bullying categories.  If such proactive efforts pay off, why aren’t more states making bullying prevention a priority?
