Bullying: Definition, Signs, and Legal Implications

Bullying is a persistent problem on school campuses all over the country and world. According to a 2016 report by the National Center on Educational Statistics, nearly 21% of U.S. students age 12–18 reported being bullied during the 2014–2015 (the most recent data available). PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center found that students with disabilities are two to three times more likely to be bullied than peers who do not have disabilities.

Bullying negatively affects children’s physical and emotional health and academic performance. This three-part series discusses the definition of bullying, warning signs, and the legal implications when a student is accused of bullying.
