Little Rock School District tracking bullying in schools

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - "More than 2 years later and nobody knows," Terry Richard explained. Richard is passionate about the fight to stop bullying within the Little Rock School District, which is why he is challenging the school board's plan of action. He said, "There's no measure of really what's going on with bullying."

According to school board president Greg Adams, the district is collecting data of bullying cases for comparison and measurement. Thursday evening the district's bullying committee met to review data and discuss their progress.
