Bullying Causes More Than Just Emotional Toll on Schools

A new study finds that bullies take more than just an emotional toll on students–they also take a financial toll…how?

California is one of a number of states who receives funding based on student attendance, rather than total enrollment; in SCR’s region, Texas is one of the states that follows this method. In California, schools lost about $276 million in attendance because kids were afraid to come to school for fear of the bullies and being bullied. The data found 10 percent of students missed at least one day of school in the past year because they didn’t feel safe–which means 301,000 kids missed out on a day of school for this reason.

This new study finds an economic reason to prevent bullying in schools.
