San Francisco Tries to Put an End to Bullying

Now that city officials have successfully gotten more kids to actually go to school, all they have to do it get students to quit bullying their classmates.

To be sure, Mayor Ed Lee and Police Chief Greg Suhr, along with many others, are throwing an anti-bullying bonanza starting tomorrow to brainstorm ways to make bullying less appealing to kids while educating them about the terrible effects bullies have on others.

The two-day summit will begin on Thursday at 10:15 a.m. where more than 3,000 students will pack the Herbst Theater to see a screening of the indie documentary Bully. Afterward, students will have a chance to talk with the director and producer, Lee Hirsch, about the movie.

And there's more.
