A total of 5.8% of the students who responded to a recent student survey said they were bullied at school 2-3 times a month or more in 2020. That is 0.2% less than in 2019.
The survey included students from 5th grade and high school. 5.8% of them correspond to about 26,650 school students.
“I would, of course, wish that no students answered that they were bullied… At the same time, it is a good sign that the number is declining,” Minister of Education and Integration Guri Melby (V) noted in a press release.
Almost 80% of students responded to the survey in 2020, a new record.
“It is also very good that so many students have responded to the survey. It gives us good information about how the students are doing,” she added.
