'They're still going to hurt you'

"During 2006-07 there were more than 12,000 incidents in state schools of bullying or harassment," Dawn Marks reports today in The Oklahoman.
[A] seventh-grader, who didn't want to give his name, said bullying happens frequently in his school in the Oklahoma City area. The student ... said he and other students don't report it.

"What's the point of doing that if it's not going to change?" he said. "They're still going to follow you, hurt you. ... I don't know what to do, so I just stay to myself."

Here's a bullying story with a happy ending -- thanks to school choice.
