Bullying Being Reported in District 6

More students in District 6 are reporting instances of bullying than before.

Superintendent Zoe Watson says programs aimed at informing students of the importance of coming forward when they are being bullied seems to be working.
Watson says in most cases, incidents generally involve the same students.
Watson says it seems younger children are more likely to report instances of bullying, because older students generally try and solve their problems on their own. She says it would be valuable if all instances were reported to staff---but it's unlikely.
