Bullying a problem in Oklahoma schools

According to a report yesterday in The Oklahoman,
The Oklahoma Anti-Bullying Survey of 2005 asked 7,848 third-, fifth- and seventh-graders from 85 school districts about bullying. The survey found:
  • 33 percent said they had been involved in bullying.
  • 14 percent claimed to be a bullying victim.
  • 12 percent reported being a bully.
  •   7 percent said they had been a victim and a bully.
  • Nearly two-thirds of children who were frequently bullied and half of the children who had not been bullied wanted better adult supervision.
