Dallas News cites study in report on how parents can stop hazing

Dallas News cited a 2008 University of Maine study in the article, “How parents can stop hazing before kids become victims — or suspects.” The national study, which was conducted by researchers Elizabeth Allan and Mary Madden, found that 9 out of 10 people who were hazed didn’t recognize that what happened to them was hazing, according to the article. The study also showed that even though athletes and fraternity members are the biggest hazers, hazing happens at all levels of society and in all kinds of organizations, including band and performing arts, choir, church groups and the workplace, the article states.
