Bullying is a form of harassment in which the victim is repeatedly mistreated by a more powerful person or someone in a position of authority. A bully may be physically, psychologically or socially more powerful than his victim.

Bullies hit, push, trip, steal from, or destroy the possessions of their victims. Name-calling, intimidation, spreading rumors and social isolation are also common ways that bullies harass their victims.

Most victims do not ask for help when they are bullied out of fear and shame. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, many teachers underestimate the extent of bullying going on in their classrooms for this reason.

According to a Safe School Initiative report by the U.S. Secret Service, educators must ensure that students are not bullied by promoting an anti-bullying message and encouraging students to confide in adults when bullying takes place.
