Problem *****

To date, just one large-scale study on bullying in the United States has been conducted; in this study by Nansel, Overpeck, Pilla, Ruan, Simons-Morton, & Scheidt (2001), 15,686 6th-through 10th-grade students ***** requested to complete surveys on bully*****g.

The bullying thus far has been mostly verbal with taunting, teasing and some exclusion but "accidental" bumping and kicking under ***** table have also been *****.
