What Is Bullying?

Bullying is intimidation, plain and simple. Bullies typically have one agenda to control and make a “weaker” person they deem inferior do what they want them to do. In school environments, on many occasions bullying can lead to “hazing,” forcing people to earn acceptance by doing humiliating acts. At least 1.5 million high school students have been hazed.
