A female bully, portrayed in the 1917 silent film Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.

School bullying is a pattern of behavior during the ages when children and young people are in school. It is about an imbalance of social, physical or other power involving a person or group.

Studies show that school bullying happens to some more than others, particularly young people with disabilities[1] and those with sexual orientation that are not traditional. [2]
