Stats on Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is becoming a common term in peace education in schools, particularly in the United States. This infographic shows some stats from the US related to bullying through online means.

Some questions come to mind when dealing with bullying online. What do these stats actually mean? In other words, are the numbers important or do they distract from larger systemic issues that give rise to bullying? How do we “teach that it is wrong” especially when teachers are not present in the online spaces where this is happening? What actually helps to change behaviours? Are the solutions for cyberbullying any different than other bullying situations?
