The following is data from a national level regarding Bullying:  15-20% of all students are victimized by bullies at some point in their career; almost one in three are involved in bullying, either as a bully or victim; 10% of students are afraid during much of the school day; 160,000 children miss school every day in the USA for fear of being bullied; and about 20% of students have reported being victimized by online bullying. The following is information according to what I call the National Definition of Bullying that includes the following elements: stronger against a more vulnerable child; intentional and happens more than once; serious in nature; in short bullying is a one-sided unfair match that happens more than once and has attendant physical, emotional or psychological harm.
