UNESCO, which states for United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, released a report today that 1 in 3 teens have been bullied in school.
Gender mattered as did economics.
Boys had slightly higher rates being bullied, but in countries with the highest rates of bullying girls were more likely to be the victims. The bullying data did not sexual or gender-based violence.
In countries that are considered wealthy, those teens who have less money were more likely to be bullied.
Also, they found that in wealthier countries, children who were immigrants to that country were more likely to be bullied.
The data came from the Global School Health Survey of children ages 13 to 17 in low income areas of the world and the Health Behavior in School-Age Children of children ages 11 to 15 in 42 countries, primarily Europe and North America.
