MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Recent bullying statistics show about 160,000 children miss school every day out of fear of being bullied.
About 2.7 million students are bullied every year, 71% of them report it as an ongoing problem.
13-year-old Carlos Armstrong is one of them. He was reunited with his mother Tuesday evening after running away from home Saturday, he says, because he was being bullied at school and didn’t want to have to go back to class.
