Bullying-better spelled: cruelty

I like Dr. Jo ann--why call it bullying when it is really cruelty???? • News • 'Connectedness' can overcome cruelty: "While others are crusading against bullying, Dr. Jo Ann Freiberg of the Connecticut Department of Education abhors the word.

Calling it a “four-letter word” that should be avoided, she told Stratford educators Monday to focus on a different term that better characterizes the behavior of some students toward peers — cruelty."
