More Parents Feel Bullying Is Schools' Responsibility, Not Theirs

Many Americans continue to feel the impact of bullying but now are more convinced that schools rather than parents need to do something about it.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of American Adults say they or someone in their family have experienced a problem with school bullying. Forty-three percent (43%) have not had a family problem with bullying, but 11% are not sure. This is consistent with past surveying. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
