Statistics in 2010 reveal that bullying is not going away any time soon. There are about 160,000 children that miss school every day out of fear of being bullied. Cyberbullying activities also rose in 2010. About one in seven students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade is either a bully or has been a victim of bullying.
