90% of school bullying on Ibiza begins on WhatsApp

Guardia Civil officer Ferran Gandía warned that 90% of cases of bullying begin on WhatsApp, and many from as early as fifth grade (10-11 years) or even earlier.
Technology has changed bullying and the kids need to know that it is a crime punishable by law. Gandía is offering lectures in all of the Pitiuses schools – except Vila, where the Guardia Civil has no authority.
A head teacher in Ibiza said they had more than 5 reported cases of bullying through WhatsApp, “and most of the time young people were not aware that they were committing a crime.” said Gandía.
