ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – A report recently obtained by 18 News, revealed the Elmira City School District reported 12 incidents of bullying and assault to the state. Yet, 18 News has been sent over 25 videos of, what seems to be, physical assault on the grounds of Elmira City schools. In an interview conducted in Jan. 2022, a seventh-grader in the Elmira City School District said bullying happens multiple times per day, every single day. 'I don't want to go to school because I'm nervous I'm going to get beat up again,' he said.
