- over 75% of school shootings have been linked with bullying and harassment.
- One tenth of high school dropouts do so because of bullying.
- Both bullies and their victims are more likely to be convicted of committing a violent crime, and both are more likely to take their lives

As a Parent
Remember: you are your child's role model and your actions will affect how they deal with future problems they encounter.
As a Student
Remember: with bullying, there are no innocent bystanders.
