Kids more bullied now

This article takes a look at the increasing numbers of kids who either are bullied or who bully and the reasons for the bullying. Within the article are some statements about guns in schools. From the article:
" 1 out of 20 students has seen a student with a gun at school." And more below:
" 87 percent of students said shootings are motivated by a desire to "get back at those who have hurt them.""
" 61 percent of students said students shoot others because they have been victims of physical abuse at home."
Take a look at the other statements from the article. The report should be more than a wake-up call to the adults all over the country about the increasing instances of bullying in our schools, even among elementary aged children.
