REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

This article is of particular interest, data analysis performed on bullying in a large sample of students from primary to secondary Balearic community. The all these data show that schools are producing more abuse and social exclusion, verbal aggression, physical aggression, followed by indirect threat to bullying behaviors, and direct physical aggression also, although in a smaller percentage, to compel others to do things, sexual harassment and threats with weapons. By comparing these data with those obtained in other studies carried out within and outside the State, we are informed, higher percentages of poor peer relationships in elementary school than in secondary. Other data show the lack of the existence of bullying and non-visibility of this issue. These authors present improvent by making visible this problem through a process of awareness in the educational institution that involves all systems that are part of the educational community, especially the students and teachers.
