THE BRONX - The South Bronx Seventh-Day Adventist Youth Society sponsored a youth march today against bullying, gang violence and drugs.

Hundreds of children and parents marched in an effort to send a message against bullying and crime.

The Department of Education reports that bullying is still a major issue. It says that 18 percent of the city's high school students reported being bullied at school or over the Internet in 2011.

The DOE has enacted "Respect for All" initiatives to help teach students to respect differences in others.

It says if your child is the victim of bullying and harassment, the incident should be reported immediately to a staff member at school.
