Must see!!
27 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a must-see. As a retired high school teacher I am very aware of how cruel students can be to one another. Mr. Winn has done an amazing job directing and putting this film together. An important statement! Bravo! What is the thing that sets you apart from the "norm" and gets you teased/bullied? Are you overweight, acne covered, shy, a band nerd, a geek? Is your religion different from most of the other students? In the US right now (late 2011) much bullying is being made based on a persons income, social status, political leanings..... A sad state of affairs to be sure. I will add, that under the current economic conditions and political climate, most of the bullying in public schools is the administration bullying the teachers. Sad but true. Tom
