Be sure to join MTN as we air our Face the State this Sunday, as we look into the prevalent issue of bullying.
You'll hear from all sides - officers, teachers, students, and educational leaders. Here's a preview of what parents and a child who was bullied had to say.
"I was choked by another kid after I confronted him about stealing something out of my backpack, I couldn't breathe."
"If I could go to school with my kids everyday so nobody could touch them I would do it. But that's not gonna stop it from happening, because they'll find them somewhere else," the mother of the bullied child, Susan Hopkins said.
Face the State airs on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 9:30 a.m. on the Montana Television Network.
