Bullying in grade school is a well-researched topic. There are tons of campaigns aimed at reducing bullying at schools, creating a safe and welcoming environment, and ensuring that the adverse consequences of bullying are avoided.

In this conversation, they discuss their motivations behind choosing the topic, statistical methods and what’s desired as they contribute the study to the fields of public health and education, research and practice.
