Bullied | A Student, a School and a Case That Made History

Grade Level

Jamie Nabozny

Bullied is a documentary film that chronicles one student's ordeal at the hands of anti-gay bullies and offers an inspiring message of hope to those fighting harassment today. It can become a cornerstone of anti-bullying efforts in middle and high schools. 

Bullied is designed to help administrators, teachers and counselors create a safer school environment for all students, not just those who are gay and lesbian. It is also intended to help all students understand the terrible toll bullying can take on its victims, and to encourage students to stand up for their classmates who are being harassed. 

Bullied has been endorsed by the NEA

"This film is powerful, important and extremely realistic. It provides teachers with a rare opportunity to address bullying in a real and meaningful way."

Lee Cutler, Secretary/Treasurer, New York State United Teachers
