Our AC360° bullying study found that in 77% of incidents, no bystanders intervened to help their peers. The sociologist we teamed up with for this study, Robert Faris, says that type of behavior needs to change. Faris believes the best way to help end bullying is to encourage more bystanders to get involved and stop acts of bullying when they see them happening. Anderson Cooper spoke with a number of students who are on the front-lines of that fight –- highly ranked as interveners.
