School fights posted on the Web
Bullying is a big problem at schools across the nation, and in many instances leads to fights which are sometimes posted on the Internet, but the problem doesn't stop at the border. Schools in Nuevo Laredo are now dealing with the problem in a big way.
As other students cheer on, girls are fighting in the middle of a school campus.
According to a report in Nuevo Laredo, this was a common scene last school year.
Administrators say more than five fights were recorder each day in Nuevo Laredo middle schools alone.
Administrators say the problem of bullying is mostly with their female student population and as you can see in this video, they are taking their differences and posting them on the Web.
According to one middle school teacher, these fights are not happening anymore.
He says they have implemented an educational program for students, parents and teachers about bullying, but what’s on the Internet is the lack of respect against each student, as their friends watch on.
Meanwhile teachers say due to the recent violence in Nuevo Laredo, students have opted to stop fighting, as there have not been any reported fights this new school year.
