Kids and Bullying

According to the National Education Association, 160,000 children won’t go to school on any given day for fear of being bullied—a figure that represents nothing less than an epidemic. Whether a student is overweight, openly gay, perceived as promiscuous, or just plain different, more and more young people are tragically choosing to take their own lives because they can’t take it anymore. Are schools not doing enough? Should parents take a share of the blame? In this ABC News program, correspondent Chris Cuomo talks to families, kids, educators, and lawmakers to find out what’s going on. He listens to the bullied, confronts the instigators of bullying, and takes viewers inside the Alliance School—a no-hate, no-bullying zone in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the only middle school of its kind in the United States.
