What is the world turning into? Bullying. A person who hurts, intimidates, physically assaults towards another person to have power over someone and feel better. Bullying is becoming an increasing problem in society. Bullying happens everywhere but has a big impact in schools. 2.7 million kids report being bullied at school annually and on the opposite end of the seesaw, 2.1 million kids have been identified as bullies.(Skolnik) Many students are afraid to go to school because they’re being bullied and they can't do anything about it because of their fear.

The bully feels good when the bully sees the victim is hurt and it makes the bully feel that has power. Therefore the victim has low-self esteem and suffer from depression.Then they don't want to attend classes. On a daily average 160,000 children miss school because they fear they will be bullied if they attend classes.(Hall and Jones) The victim should report the bully with a supervisor but ask for the bully to not be exposed, to not let the bully know that is being reported because that would lead to more fear for the victim because the bully might attack again when noone is around to save the victim from getting hurt instead of the victim confronting the bully. In the article “ Bullying in Schools” Ginsburg and Lee state that “ Direct confrontation of the bully by their victim is virtually never the answer it does
