Beaten by the Bullies
John Waite presents the investigative consumer series.
John looks at why, all too often, it is the victims of bullying, rather than the bullies themselves, who have to leave schools. One estimate suggests that up to 6,000 children have been bullied so badly they have quit mainstream education. The programme hears from the victims of bullying and their parents, who say that schools are not doing enough to tackle bullying.
