Bullying in Schools

Grace Shamer

Bullying is a big factor in many schools today. Bullying can have a huge effect on a student’s
performance and overall mental health. Studies show that 1 out of 5 students have reported
being bullied in some kind of way.
“It most definitely has an effect on a student’s well being,” said a parent of a high school student.
“I’m so glad I’ve always been homeschooled,” said a homeschooled student.

One of the main reasons parents choose to homeschool their children is the fear or reality that
they are or could be getting bullied or harassed. Many students can agree that school itself is
stress inducing and takes up most of their free time. When they get bullied it obviously gets
worse. Bullying is one of the main reasons students commit suicide and or partake in self
destructive behaviors.
