  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death among adolescents and is often the desperate response to prolonged physical and mental harassment at school. This program investigates the disturbing prevalence of bullying by focusing on a high school where the problem made headlines. Parents, teachers, school officials, bullying victims, and even bullies themselves discuss the conditions that allow abusive behavior to flourish and what can be done to curtail it. A model grammar school is also visited where the principal takes the lead in creating an atmosphere of safety and cooperation, as well as learning.
