How common is bullying in Canadian high schools?
I went to two different public schools in BC. Besides slight feeling of division on ethniticy, people generally respected each other. Yes someone in my first secondary school put a condom on my water bottle, but we ended up being friendly, because I knew he was been childish, and I was among the Chinese immigrant student group that Aced every single class (except English lol). The rest of the class kind of needed our help in math and sciences. Our grade 10 math teacher used to teach in her way first, and invite a Chinese kid to show the Asian way. Our academic performance as Asian immigrants helped diminish our fear towards the new environment and somehow brought us some status to stay equal as the others.
Maybe bully is less of a problem in Canadian schools, but respect needs to be earnt. I worked for it.
