There are three types of students in American schools today; bullies, victims, and bystanders. Each type of student is uniquely affected by the violence and cruelty perpetrated by bullies on their helpless victims. In this video podcast, students share the characteristics of both bullies and victims and explore ways in which all students can help stop the abuse. The theme of the video podcast is "How Would You Feel", and is designed to evoke an emotional appeal that will hopefully help all three types of students break free from the cycle of violence that is so prevalent in middle schools and high schools. The podcast ends with ways that students can help stop bullying.
