Tulsa area educators will get a lesson in bullying Monday night at a special screening of the documentary film "Bully."

Video that went viral last week of a New York bus monitor being harassed by some middle school students is reigniting the attention on bullies, and the fact that age isn't really a factor.

The producer and director of the documentary is in Tulsa and says the video is proof of one especially threatening place for some people.

Lee Hirsch, Producer & Director: "It seems to me busses are a real hot spot that can be very scary and dangerous," said Lee Hirsch, "Bully" director and producer.

"I think we're all shocked by the cruelty that this bus aid was experiencing. But for a lot of kids who ride busses every day, they won't be as shocked."

Hirsch was to speak at the Circle Cinema starting at 8:15 p.m. Monday.
