Hazing in Iowa

The ritual of hazing is nothing new - the act of using harassment, abuse or humiliation as a way of initiating a person into a group. There have been three separate incidents across the state recently involving alleged hazing incidents within high school wrestling programs. Ben talks with University of Northern Iowa Associate Professor Jennifer Waldron about her research looking at the culture of hazing. We'll also hear from an eastern Iowa high school student who has led an anti-bullying initiative at College Community Schools.
