Abstract: This study, drawing on data from the latest cycles of the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), examined whether or not bullying at school is related to (i) mathematics, science, and reading achievement among fourth-graders in TIMSS 2011 and PIRLS 2011 participating countries and (ii) mathematics and science achievement among eighth-graders in TIMSS 2011 participating countries. Ordinary least squares regression analyses revealed that bullying at school is negatively related to academic achievement among fourth- and eighth-graders in most of the TIMSS 2011 and PIRLS 2011 participating countries. Implications of the findings are briefly discussed for educational policy and practice.
