CYBERBULLYING ON THE RISE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

CYBERBULLYING ON THE RISE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

More than 25 percent of public middle and high schools deal with cyberbullying events at least once a week.

This rate of frequency appears related to school enrollment, as weekly events are reported in:

27% of schools with 1,000+ students
● 13% of schools with enrollment between 500 and 1,000 students
● 8% of schools with fewer than 300 students.

The location of the school (urban, suburban, rural) did not have a significant impact on cyberbullying incidents, but schools with higher populations of white students tended to experience more cases of cyberbullying.
