BROOKLYN - The Department of Education has launched a new online program to help students, parents and teachers battle bullying in schools.

Many students at the International High School in downtown Brooklyn say they have been bullied and are happy to hear that help is on the way.

Chancellor Dennis Walcott stopped by the school to show students the new anti-bullying website called "Respect for All".

The new resource is a one-stop shop for students, parents and teachers to learn more about ways to teach respect, like showing kids the proper way to treat one another and identify what exactly bullying is.

Students at the International High School have set up their own program to help with this problem, and teachers are hoping this new resource will help strengthen the skills they already know.
