I cant wait to go see Bully in theaters! I've been bullied almost all half of my life and I wanted to know whats your take on schools trying to stop bullying. Are they not doing enough or are they making it easy or more difficult for bully's?
It depends, some schools have really taken the initiative to combat bullying in their schools, while others continue to deny that the problem exists. What really must happen, and this is part of the reason we made this film, is to create discussions surrounding the issue. Bullying has been neglected as a serious issue in our nation's school for years, but now as a result of this film and this movement, we have mobilized many different organizations and individuals to begin that discussion in communities throughout the country. It will take time to create the change we seek, but ultimately if we continue the speaking out about the issue, it must be handled at some point or another.
