35pc of teenage students bullied

Says Unicef report

In Bangladesh, 35 percent of students, aged 13 to 15, have reported being bullied one or more days in the past 30 days and/or involved in a physical fight at least once in 2014, says a new Unicef report released yesterday,

Half of students of this age group worldwide, 150 million, reported having experienced peer-to-peer violence in and around school, it says.

The report, "An Everyday Lesson: #ENDviolence in Schools", says peer violence -- measured as the number of children who report having been bullied in the last month or having been involved in a physical fight in the last year -- impacts learning and well-being in rich and poor countries alike.

“Education is the key to building peaceful societies, and yet, for millions of children around the world, school itself is not safe,” said Unicef Executive Director Henrietta Fore.
