Duplin County Bus Drivers Train For Bullying

A new study suggests bullying takes an academic toll on teens. GPA's dropped among high school students who say they were bullied in a survey of nearly 10,000 students in 580 schools.

Duplin County school officials attempted to combat this problem, at least on the school bus. Bullying on buses was one focus of school bus driver training in the county.

Bus drivers say bullying is different on a bus than in a classroom because drivers have their eyes on the road, and the bus is a pretty tight space.
