MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The study compared children’s happiness in 15 countries, including England.

According to the report, children in England were unhappier with their school experience than their peers in 11 other countries, including Ethiopia and Algeria.

The report, carried out in collaboration with the University of York, found that 38 percent of children surveyed in England had been hit by a classmate in the preceeding month.

"It is deeply worrying that children in this country are so unhappy at school compared to other countries, and it is truly shocking that thousands of children are being physically and emotionally bullied, damaging their happiness," Matthew Reed, the chief executive of the Children’s Society, was quoted as saying on the charity’s website.
