Student Bullying and Perceptions of Power Imbalance
Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2018 was produced jointly by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in the U.S. Department of Education, and the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the U.S. Department of Justice. Using results from several national surveys and questionnaires, this report presents the most recent data available on school crime and student safety.
AIR assisted NCES in producing the report. As part of its work, AIR staff developed a spotlight, Perceptions of Bullying Among Students Who Reported Being Bullied: Repetition and Power Imbalance. This spotlight examines perceptions of bullying among youth who reported being bullied, including whether victims of bullying felt like it would happen again and what type of power imbalance they perceived between themselves and the person who did the bullying.
