A new study has found that nearly half of urban sixth-grade students say that they were harassed at least once in two-week period. The most common bullying incidents involved name-calling, kicking and shoving. This bullying is related to negative attitudes toward school, lack of engagement in class and fewer positive experiences in school.

Nearly half of urban sixth-grade students say they were harassed at least once in two-week period, a new study found.

The most common incidents involved name-calling, kicking and shoving.

"These findings are important because they show that many more kids are affected by bullying both through their own personal experiences and by what they see happening to their classmates than previously estimated," said lead research Adrienne Nishina of UCLA's Department of Education.

This is very shocking news. If this is true, this means that many kids are bullied. This is also bad because bullied kids might fight back against their enemies. This will only make more violence.

Only half?
I would think that everyone in the class would be getting bullied except for the bullies. Would that mean that Half of sixth-graders are bullies?
