CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- There's no doubt bullying is happening in our schools.
CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- There's no doubt bullying is happening in our schools. In fact, a recent survey shows 21% of Illinois high school students say they've been bullied there. Ask 12 - 18 year olds and it rises to 32%.

The Junior League of Champaign-Urbana wanted to do something about the problem. It hosted a screening of the movie Bully at the Champaign Library Thursday night. It's a documentary which follows the lives of five students going through it.

Parents, teachers and community members were invited to come, but turnout was low. After the movie, people talked about what could be done to improve things in Champaign County schools.
