WHAT YOU SAID
The Tahlequah Daily Press recently asked readers to respond to an online poll. The question was: Among other things, October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Which statement most describes your experience?
Of 157 respondents, a plurality of 68 voters, or 43 percent, voted for “I have been a victim of bullying. Fifty-three voters, or 34 percent said “I have been both a victim of bullying and have at times bullied others.”
Answering to “I have never been a victim of bullying, nor have I bullied anyone” were 26 voters, or 17 percent. Seven voters, or four percent, answered “I have bullied other people,” and three voters, or two percent, voted for “I’m not sure whether I’ve bullied or been bullied.”
