LOS ALAMITOS — Eighty-six percent of about 600 readers said they believe schools do not handle bully attacks and threats seriously, according to a Register online poll.

The poll looked for reader insight on the story surrounding a mother who alleged that bully attacks on her 11-year-old son were ignored by the Los Alamitos Unified School District.
