After studying reports from 90,000 students in more than 500 New York City schools, researchers from Syracuse and New York universities concluded that bullying is less a problem in schools with students of wide-ranging ages such as K-8 than in schools with just a few grades. The study’s authors concede that while a “wholesale reorganization” of the nation’s schools would be costly, urban school districts undergoing major shifts in enrollment or looking for efficiencies may find opportunities to adopt K-8 models.
