The bullying statistics 2010 reveal that bullying is a crime that is not going away anytime soon. There are about 160,000 children that miss school every day out of fear of being bullied. Bullying statistics 2010 also report an increase in cyberbullying activities. Gifted Nations is on a mission to decrease this number tremendously in the 2012/2013 school year and ongoing year around.
