Racist Bullying

Racist bullying is an attack on someone due to their race, colour or creed. With an increasingly multicultural society in Ireland, this type of bullying is becoming more widespread. Each year, Childline Ireland receives over 500 calls from children stating that they are victims of racist bullying. And a recent B&A survey found that 40% of teachers in VEC, community and comprehensive schools had more than 4 minority ethnic students in their classes and that some 14% taught more than 10 students from non-Irish backgrounds.
