I take issue with the article regarding the ongoing investigation at Wood Memorial High School. From the very beginning, the incident has been referred to as hazing; now it is labeled bullying. There is a big difference between hazing and bullying. While I agree that bullying is reprehensible and should be strongly dealt with, hazing, by definition, implies a much stronger and humiliating experience.
I haven't read or heard of officials changing the original statement of allegations of hazing. Until that announcement, I have to believe that whomever is involved participated in or suffered hazing.
