TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Parents are meeting Thursday night to discuss the issue of bullying at Woodville Elementray School.

Organizers Lori Lee Nelson and Kiley Kearse said that they are upset, because they feel school officials seem reluctant to get involved and help end bullying for their children.

Parents said that they want public officials to take charge and enforce proper actions, so they can put an end to all children being bullied in the school.

"And we can't do anything about what they're learning at home, but we can find ways of showing them to redirect their anger, redirect this kind of behavior in a positive manner rather than a negative one. That not only affects them at school but is affecting other children and their learning process," explained Kearse.

Right now, raising awareness to this situation is a top priority for Kearse, and she hoped that school officials will get involved.

The meeting began at 6 p.m., at the Woodville Public Library and it's open for any parent to attend.
