School Leaders say Hazing Becoming out of Control
Idaho Falls- It may seem harmless to some. But to the kids and parents at Eagle Rock Middle School, hazing has become a harsh reality.
Kids over there have been getting paddled by students from Skyline High School as part of an initiation ritual.
Now parents and administrators are trying to end the ritual.
1970's high school hi-jinx. It seems pretty funny on the big screen. But for students at Eagle Rock Middle School, it's been pretty painful.
To their parents, it's downright scary.
TRICIA A. JORGENSEN\PARENT:
Pain has just been part of the problem. Kids are so afraid they have trouble with their work.
STEVEN BARNES\EAGLE ROCK SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER:
Regardless of the issues of the parents, some kids at Skyline say it's all being blown out of proportion.
SEAN MOLLBERG\SKYLINE STUDENT:
None of this is new over there. They say it's been going on for a few years.
