Bullying ‘hidden to save reputations of schools’

UK Telegraph 27 Mar 07
Victims of bullying are being told to stay at home for their own safety and schools are hushing up serious incidents to protect their reputations, MPs say today. Some schools try to tackle the problem by attempting to change the victim’s behaviour when they should be tackling the bully, according to the report by the Commons education committee. Failure to implement anti-bullying policies is leading to many problems, from general unhappiness to depression, self-harm or suicide.
