The respondents of the study were ten second year accountancy students chosen from the total number of 240 second year students through quota non-random sampling.

Bullies always have more power than victims. Their power comes from physical size, strength, status, and support within the peer group. Their behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both who are bullied and bullies may have serious, lasting problems. There are factors in order to be considered bully. First, the behavior must be aggregative. This includes actions such as making threats, spreading humors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Second, the behavior of bullies includes an imbalance of power and repetition.

People who bully use their power- such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity ?to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people. Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once. Bullying can take a number of different forms. There are four types of such: physical, verbal, covert and cyber bullying. Physical bullying includes hitting, kicking, tripping, pinching and pushing or damaging property.

This form of bullying is the most common type. Meanwhile, herbal bullying includes name calling, insults, teasing, intimidation, homophobic or racist remarks, or verbal abuse. The third type is covert. Covert lulling is often harder to recognize and can be carried out behind the bullied person’s back. It is designed to harm someone’s social reputation and/or cause humiliation. And the last type is cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is overt or covert bullying behaviors using digital technologies. It can happen at any time.

It can be in public or in private, and sometimes only known to the target and the person bullying. But what triggers bullying? Where a person displays some of the above traits, bullying can start simply because the target is there, and does nothing at all to provoke it. Bullying may be unwittingly revoked because the target is competent, popular, successful, has integrity or otherwise characteristics that the bully perceives as a threat to their own status, fearing that the target will – inadvertently or deliberately – expose some negative aspect of their activity.

It is a common response to raising concerns about malpractice (fraud, health and safety breaches and bullying), sometimes called “whistle-blowing”. So what would you do to stop bullying? Background of the Study The importance of this study is that, it helps us find out how bullying affects the students’ performance in school and how will this be solved. By surveying the demographic profiles of the students, some information about their bullying Some of those students who have been bullied tend to be scared to ever step foot in school again.

Aside from that, this study also helps not Just the students but most probably the parents and teachers for them to know how to help students to cope up with this kind of problem. This also makes us aware of what are the reasons why some students want to bully others; what they can get from bullying others. And it is also for us to be aware on what are those possible consequences that this problem ay bring to anyone and what are those ways to minimize bullying inside the school.

For the study to be accurate, these questions are being asked. 1. To know why bullying is done to them. 2. What are the effects of bullying in their lives and the possible outcome after this incident happened to them? 3. How they manage to continue studying despite of that happening? 4. Why they think of all the students, they are the chosen to be bullied upon? 5. What should be their attitude for them not to be bullied? Hypothesis Students who do not get good grades are more liked to be bullied. Bullies have lower school attachment than non-bullies and found to have low academic achievement.

Students that can easily communicate with their parents are less likely to bully. Adolescents, family, environment and interactions can affect bullying behavior; including low parental warmth, low family cohesion and and low involvement with parents. Students that live with single parents are more likely to bully. Single parent family structures have been positively associated with bullying involvement. Students who live in urban areas are more likely to bully. Nationality, gender age and class may prevail bullying.

Significance of the Study The findings which this study will reveal, may benefit certain groups and the infinite they may be able to gain are as follows: Students- this study may use this example as their guide to bear in mind that they are luckier compare to those who are bullied because they are still send to school despite of economic problems our parents are facing today. Parents- parents should implement strategies FRR the development of their children although they experience being bullied to bring them in a state that they can be proud to be the parents even of those who overcome the effects of being bullied.

Its prevalence in many countries suggests that most children will experience school bullying at some stage, Their power comes from physical size, strength, status, and support within the peer group. Their behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.
