Copenhagen: Anti-bullying effort reduces bullying


The Copenhagen Post
The latest figures show that council efforts to prevent and stop bullying are working

An intensive anti-bullying effort by local authorities has paid off, according to new figures from City Council.

The latest data shows the number of children being bullied between the ages of 10 and 16 within the last two months fell by almost a third compared with recent years. In 2007 and 2008, 16 percent of children had reportedly been bullied, that figure is now down to 11 percent.

The number of regular bullying victims has fallen from 2.4 percent to 1.8 percent.

The council has been working with a range of anti-bullying initiatives including selecting older children to work as mediators for conflicts that occur between younger kids during lunch breaks.
