Dramatic decline in bullying rates in Guam schools

Updated 26 August 2014, 16:35 AEST

Schools in Guam are reporting a massive decline in the number of reported bullying cases in the past four years.

Local education officials were motivated to act in 2010, concerned by the extremely high rates of bullying in public schools.

They say the number of cases reported has dropped by more than 80 per cent since then, following the introduction of various anti-bullying programs.
