Only half of adults say schools should take action when kids bully with social isolation
Date:9/17/2012

ANN ARBOR, Mich. U.S. adults repeatedly rate bullying as a major health problem for U.S. children. But a new poll from the University of Michigan shows adults have different views about what bullying behaviors should prompt schools to take action.
