Cyberbullying:

American University’s School of Education

This guide on How to Manage and Prevent Bullying addresses bullying that happens both on and offline. Students facing bullying may encounter issues long-term that may not immediately surface. This terrible issue is still a significant struggle for many of our students, regardless of age. A recent study showed that 55.2% of LGBT students surveyed stated that they experienced some significant form of bullying before graduating high school. Other studies have surveyed that 23.7% of students experienced bullying through some form of sexual comments or gestures.
