ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the prevalence, subtlety, and potentially fatal aspects of bullying in schools. He presents the case of sixth-grader Carl Walker-Hoover, who committed suicide in 2009 after being bullied by schoolmates, and suggests that such cases go to show that bullying is more common and powerful than most educators think. The characteristics of the common bully are described, with the author pointing out that most bullies are popular students who use social aggression to gain more popularity and influence in their social circle.
