+  Study finds school violence results in 90,000 ER trips annually

  • Description: Anti-bullying campaigns may be in full-swing nationwide, but school children are still being seriously injured at an alarming rate on school property, according to a new study. Each year, more than 90,000 kids are sent to the ER over “intentional” injuries. Published in medical journal Pediatrics, the study used data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System to quantify statistics about when our children are being bullied and how. Researchers found that of the 7,397,201 injuries that occur on school grounds each year, about 10 percent (or 736,014) are a direct result of bully behavior.
