Eastchester school looks to combat bullying

A Hudson Valley school district says it is taking a proactive approach against bullying.

On Monday, students at Tuckahoe High School were shown the film "Rachel's Challenge," which tells the story of Rachel Scott, a teenager who was a victim of the Columbine shootings in 1999.

The film is being presented across the country as an anti-bullying and violence-prevention program.

"I honestly think that there isn't enough being done about [bullying], I think that more presentations like this and other things would help stop a lot of it," says Kelly McKeon, a junior at Tuckahoe High School.
