This study discusses and compares five types of bullying in middle schools among ten Asia-Pacific countries. The study does this in the following ways. It explores the impact of students’ genders and family backgrounds on the bullying, finds interactions of the victimization of bullying and relevant attitudes toward schools, teachers and schoolmates, and reveals the relationships between the experiences of bullying and the difficulties, pressures and achievements of academic study in each country. The findings provide meaningful reference points for understanding students’ ethics and behavior education, schools’ counseling and support systems (as well as the general improvement of the situation in the Asia-Pacific region), and for cross-cultural education comparisons.
