Since we aired our Special Investigations Unit documentary "Campus Rage," we have received thousands of emails. Most of these responses are from teachers and parents who think bullying is getting out of control –- not just at school, but in cyberspace as well.
Of course, bullying is not a new problem.
I saw it when I was in school and I’m sure you did too. When my older sister was in the fourth grade, she was bullied so badly, my parents chose to take her out of school and send her to a different one in the middle of the school year. Her classmates relentlessly teased her for being “too smart.” In her case, it wasn’t just other kids who picked on her, it was her teacher as well. (She was able to overcome the bullying and by the time she was a senior in high school - she was the class valedictorian and homecoming queen!)
But the questions remain - Has bullying gotten worse? Or are the kids who are being bullied seeking out more revenge?
I want to hear from those of you who are being bullied. What is your day like at school? What do you want bullies to know about how they make you feel?
And for you bullies out there, why do you pick on other kids? I would love an explanation.
