Thousands of students learn about the growing bullying problem

About 9,000 students got a lesson on the growing problem of bullying on Monday.

They are learning this through a national project aimed at reducing youth bullying. The students were all 8th through 11th graders from the Cincinnati Public School District. They will watch the movie "Bully" by the end of the week.

The Cincinnati Public School District Superintendant Mary Rohan says the movie has the power to make a real difference.

The program is being funded by Sears and JP Morgan Chase among others.
