The violence in this film is shocking. There is an obvious disconnect between the administration and the students.

Good documentary about a very big problem. I agree that it doesn't do much in the way of solving the issue, or even offering solutions to the problem, but it at least calls attention to it. Some of the footage is pretty disturbing. Bullying is a serious problem. I hope one day the people in charge of fixing it come up with a solution.

Just more lip service on bullying and a simplistic, voyeuristic and slanted view. This documentary focuses only on specific groups of bullied children: special needs, transgendered, gay, etc. - all of them appear to be working class families. They do not delve into why the bullying occurs or interview the bullies. Interviews with the administration, the bus drivers, the parents of the bullies are missing. What about the bystanders, nope, hardly anything there either and they have the most power. What about showing programs that work to stop bullying? NOPE! Bullying can happen to ANY kid from ANY walk of life, I would like to see something finally happen about it but this movie is not the answer.
