Bullying in schools has become a major issue, and today local school district superintendents and principals came together in an attempt to tackle the problem.
A bullying awareness panel discussion was held earlier this afternoon at the Fortis Institute.
The panelists discussed the media responsibility, educational, parental, and legal perspectives on the topic of bullying.
Bullying has increased dramatically in schools over the years, and is something officials say needs to be dealt with.
A review of bullying statistics relevant to our local school districts were also revealed at the seminar.
