Nearly three-quarters of Americans consider bullying and harassment a serious problem in their local public schools, though not as serious as illegal drugs and lack of respect for teachers, according to an April 2010 Public Agenda survey of adults including parents of children under age 18. Thirty-five percent of all survey participants, and 39 percent of all parents, say they were bullied themselves when growing up. Eight percent of the public and 10 percent of parents say they were bullied "a lot." (2010)
