Survey finds bullying is widespread

"The vast majority of 9-, 10-, and 11-year-olds report having experienced bullying in some manner, whether as a witness, a perpetrator, a victim, or someone who has tried to help," according to a nationally representative survey conducted in September 2017.
Three out of four kids (77%) say they have witnessed bullying, including 27% who say they’ve done so “many times.” Sixty-four percent of children report having tried to help a kid who was being bullied, including 17% who say they’ve done so “many times.” Nearly two out of three (62%) kids say they’ve “ever” been bullied, including 14% who say it’s happened “many times.” And one in five kids (21%) say they’ve ever bullied other kids, although only 2% say they’ve done so “many times.”
