U.K. schools try on-board entertainment to combat bullying

Posted on March 5, 2010

School buses in North Wales are being equipped with entertainment systems with the aim of keeping students calm and seated while on board. As a result, Denbighshire County Council officials hope to see reductions in the number of bullying incidents, instances of vandalism and driver distraction.

During the bus ride, students watch age-appropriate movies, concerts and nature documentaries on DVD.

The one-year pilot program is part of the Zoom project, supported by the Welsh Assembly Government.
