Bullying victims often suffer academically, particularly high achieving blacks and Latinos

for," Williams said.

But, Williams said, the most striking aspect of the study is the considerable negative effect bullying has on the GPAs of high achieving black and Latino students. For example, Williams and Peguero found that black studentswho had 3.5 GPAs in 9th grade and were bullied in 10th gradeexperienced a .3 points decrease in their 12th grade GPAs. The effect of bullying was even greater for high achieving Latinos. Latino students with 3.5 GPAs in 9th grade, who were bullied in 10th grade, had 12th grade GPAs that were .5 points lower. By way of comparison, white studentswho had 3.5 GPAs in 9th grade and were bullied in 10th gradesaw their GPAs decrease by .03 points in 12th grade.

"Stereotypes about black and Latino youth suggest that they perform poorly in school," Williams said. "High achieving blacks and Latinos who do not conform to these stereotypes may be especially vulnerable to the effect bullying has on grades."

In terms of the study's policy implications, Williams said the study makes the case that policy-makers and educators should be thinking about the effect bullying has on student achievement. "We urge them to invest resources into protecting students from bullying, which will have implications for achievement, especially the achievement of racial and ethnic minorities," Williams said.
