    Hiya,
    I really need help with this so I'll much appreciate any replies.
    It's for my English coursework, a discursive essay, on uniforms in schools. I need to find some statistics to show whether or not kids from the USA are bullied more than children in the UK because of the uniforms or not. I've been on quite a lot of sites but I can't find anything..
    Thanks very much, Helen :cool:

    Um, just google it, tis what I would do. And if that doesn't throw anything up then I don't know. "bullying", "America", "uniform", "contrast", "Britain", in the same log should show something up. I'm sure some people have done this kind of thing before...good luck.

    What kind of stats, like just saying how much british kids get bullied because british kids could get bullied for different reasons. You could find some creditable research, it hard to know what stats you want. Childline has research, I have research I did in my school but I don't know if it meets your requirements. It wouldn't prove anything about uniform I don't think. Also go to bullying online ect, you'll be going through mountains of stuff.

    Erm... If you've just got ANY statistics that I could use to compare how many chilren are bullied in the USA as opposed to Britian. Then I could just suggest that it might be because of uniform and things.

    She's right you know. Honesty isn't always the best policy, especially when it comes to coursework, whereby cheating is almost compulsory!

    Go to the above link, it's got loads of quotes on uniform and bullying etc. Both interlinked, you'll have to look for more yourself though.

    Some are from USA, some England.

    Yeah, I would just make it up. I don't think it matters as long it's reasonable. Besides, it's not a definite factural essay, right?

    Our English teacher told us to make statistics up in the exam to support our argument, but sounding reasonable. (Not that the statistics I made up were reasonable though!)
