FOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) -- An anti-bullying campaign is causing controversy at a Fountain public school.

This week, 4th through 6th graders are taking turns being ignored at James Madison Charter Academy.

The principal tells KKTV-TV (http://tinyurl.com/phfq2ye) the program will help stop bullying, but not everyone agrees.

One mother said shunning another student is not the same as bullying, and the campaign does not send the right message that real bullies should not be tolerated.
