When it comes to bullies, Alyssa Klein calls them out. The junior at Luxemburg-Casco High School says she has been bullied verbally for being a “tall and very awkward kid”. According to a bullying statistics website, 77 percent of bullying is verbal.
Social Studies teacher Cassidy McGowan says the Luxemburg-Casco School District has a zero-tolerance bullying policy and the administration does a good job of creating a safe environment for the students.
Klein doesn’t see a lot of bullying at the high school, but when she does she chooses to be the difference.
Listen to Alyssa's public service message to stop bullying.
