FILE - In this May 12, 2015 file photo, Education Secretary Arne Duncan speaks in Arlington, Va. Nearly 1 in 4 surveyed U.S. students say they have been bullied in school. That’s an improvement, but the prevalence reinforces just how difficult the problem is to solve. A 6 percentage point decline _ from 28 percent of students age 12 to 18 saying they were bullied in 2013 compared to 22 percent two years earlier _ comes after years of focus on the problem from local school officials on up to the federal government. It’s the lowest level since the National Center for Education Statistics began surveying students on bullying in 2005, the Education Department said Friday when the results were released.
