Harkin's Senate field hearing in Des Moines on bullying

U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) convened a Senate field hearing today in Des Moines at East High School to address how the federal government might help combat bullying. Last night, for the first time, Harkin sat down to view the "Bully" documentary that largely was filmed in Sioux City. Paul Gausman, superintendent of Sioux City Community Schools, was one of the panelists on hand. Register education reporter Mary Stegmeir (@marystegmeir), meanwhile, tweeted so relentlessly throughout the hearing that she hit her daily limit of tweets! Here's a Twitter recap of the panelists' testimonials and discussion as well as input from the public in the audience.
