School board takes action against bullying

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – The San Diego Unified School District is taking action against bullying.

At a school board meeting Tuesday, Superintendent Cindy Marten announced the creation of the "Office of Youth Advocacy."

The board's action comes in response to a recent case of bullying at Morse High School where a student was beat up, allegedly because he's bisexual.

Several San Diego High School students attended Tuesday night's meeting and spoke out about bullying in schools.

"You can't expect students not to bully students when even the school doesn't treat LGBT students as worthy of time or space,” said high school senior John Kenney.

The family of the victim has filed a claim against the San Diego Unified School District over the incident.

The accused bully has been suspended and arrested.
