Fewer reports of school bullying
An extensive report on bullying and well-being in schools indicates that bullying is decreasing
 

Researchers at the University of the Faroe Islands last week presented the results of a study on bullying in Faroese schools.

Compared to two previous studies on the topic, the new report indicates that school bullying is on a decrease, with fewer pupils saying they are being bullied.

In 2007, 15 percent said they were being bullied. In 2015, this figure had come down to 13 percent, and now it is 11 percent.

School size matters

In line with the reported decrease in bullying, pupils’ well-being has improved slightly: in 2015, 82 percent of pupils said they felt happy or comfortable at school, while today that figure has risen to 84 percent.

The new survey suggests that there is less bullying in larger schools.

Most bullying takes place in the breaks between classes, according to the report.

Online bullying

Bullying online is more outspread than school bullying. 

For girls, online bullying is mostly related to personal humiliation, while the main problem for boys is being excluded from groups and games online.

Recommendations based on the new findings have been handed to the education minister.
