Bullying In Schools Could Cause Inferior Academic Achievement
In a study, children were tracked from kindergarten through high school. The study found that bullying in schools could cause inferior academic achievements. It could also lead to the loss of self-confidence and dislike of going to school. It is commonly known that bullying in schools has been more often during high school, however, a new study found that it is more frequent in elementary school.
Most bullying is expected to decrease as they grow older, but in some cases 24 percent of the children in the study suffered chronic bullying throughout their school years. They are the children who experience inferior academic achievements less engagement with school activities. Lead researcher Gary Ladd, PhD, a psychology professor at Arizona State University, said that it is important for teachers and for parents to know that victimization tends to decline as kids get older, but some children never stop suffering from bullying during their school years.
Most studies about bullying in schools focused on the psychological effects and children were observed for a shorter period of time. The study in public schools in Illinois which began with 383 kindergarteners, found different cases of bullying. Results show that 24 percent of the children are not confident with their academic ability, experiencing inferior academic achievements and dislikes going to school.
According to the Science Daily, 18 percent of children who experienced moderate bullying has same results with the 24 percent who experienced chronic bullying. 26 percent who experienced decreasing bullying has little to no effect on their academic achievement results are similar to children with little to no bullying experience 32 percent. The study shows that there are possibilities that children could cope with bullying experiences. Boys were more likely to experience constant bullying than girls.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, although this generation is known to increase online bullying via social media sites, parents need to know that children are twice as likely to suffer bullying in schools than in the social media sites. In a survey of 1000 young people aged 14- 25 found that 23 percent of the respondents had been bullied but only half sought for help. Bullying in schools has long been there, but victims are reluctant to ask for help, no matter how many anti-bullying things schools implement the character values and discipline of children always starts at home.
