(STONEWALL) -- Bullying against LGBT students is happening in schools in the United Kingdom.

A new report could serve as an example for schools in the United States.

The report was released on Tuesday by Stonewall, a London-based charity.

The data surveyed students back in 2007 and then surveyed students again ten years later.

It found that the number of students bullied about their sexual orientation fell by about a third over the past decade.

In 2007, 65 percent of lesbian, gay and bisexual students said they'd been bullied. This year, that number was at 45 percent.

The report credits schools with cracking down on harassment and featuring more LGBT content in the curriculum.

However, the report also says there's still work to do with transgender students.

Half of transgender kids reported death threats at school.
