The goal of the survey is to determine how much — and in what ways — bullying affects students in Michigan schools. From the responses in the first survey, the answer is: A lot.
In the survey, students said verbal bullying is the most common kind of bullying experienced by Michigan students — threats, put- downs, mean remarks or gossip. Indirect bullying — spreading rumors, making threatening gestures or keeping people out of a group — is the second worst kind of bullying, according to the survey, followed by physical bullying and cyberbullying on the Internet.
