It is no surprise that bullying has been occurring for years among adolescents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2017, 19% of high school students said they were bullied in the past year.

Scott Poland, Ph.D., professor at NSU’s School of Psychology, spoke with Wallet Hub about factors that put children at risk for being bullied, as well as factors that contribute to children becoming bullies and how parents, states and local governments can help intervene.
