Bully: Full of “F” Bombs,Should Be Rated R

Bully: A Harsh Documentary, but Should It Be Rated R? | Healthland | TIME.com.

Bullying is an issue that reaches far into the school system and relationships at home. This 2012 documentary film is being slighted as a great tool to bring the issue to the junior high classrooms.

The problem is that the rating it is being given is “R” even despite an appeal and a petition started by a middle school student. My take is that the rating is a fair one.  I agree that students could use this tool, however they don’t need all of the f-bombs to be heard in order for the job to get done.

Another great documentary “Super-Size Me” created a school version so it could be viewed in the schools.  There is really no reason the same could not be done here.

I think the controversy is being continued because it makes a good topic of discussion and every film, especially an independent one can use more publicity.

The article has other valuable information about bullying, and well worth the read.
