Bullying Rates Drop Among American Teens: Study

Surveys taken over 10-year period showed roughly half as many kids were instigators. American teens are much less likely to engage in bullying than they were a decade ago, new research suggests.

Surveys completed by middle school and high school students between 1998 and 2010 suggest that instances of both verbal and physical bullying dropped by roughly half, with much of the decline seen specifically among boys.
