Nyack Middle School students march against bullyingPosted: Updated:
Students at Nyack Middle School marched Monday to protest against bullying to mark "Stomp Out Bullying Day."
Both students and staff wore blue to show solidarity against bullying, while more than 700 kids marched outside the school.
School officials say students learned about bullying in each class. They say students are also writing papers and learning the history of bullying, as well as discussing the effects of it.
"Bullying is very dangerous to kids and it cultivates a lot of bad behavior and bad stuff later on in life," says eighth-grader Jack Gannon. "If we stop it here and now, it won't have all of its negative effects later on."
Each student signed a special contract promising not to be a bully and to stop it if they see it.
