Bullying in the Basque Country
This document uses graphs to demonstrate research results about bullying in Basque Country schools. The date comes from a survey conducted with students from the four levels of Secondary Education (ESO) during November-December 2004.
The research shows witness rates (frequency of incidents that happen to others), victim rates (frequency of incidents that happen to students) and the perpetrator rates (frequency of incidents in which students take part). To develope this study, six types of behaviour were used: kicking me, threatening to beat me up, making me give them money, trying to hurt me, trying to ruin something of mine, trying to hit me.
According to the conclusions, the bullying rate in the Secondary Schools of the Basque Country is 3.7%. However, 11% of students-victims don’t tell anyone and percentages of peer harassment are higher among witnesses than victims or perpetrators.
