In the recent past, much importance has been placed on the issue of bullying in schools, both in the United States and in foreign countries. Research has been conducted on this issue not only here, but in Norway, Sweden, England, Japan, and Australia. The perception of educators and parents has changed from one of "it's just a passing thing with young people" to one of concern and, in some cases, alarm. Given the seriousness of this topic, the purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which bullying occurs at the middle school level.
