Several parents with students attending Wisconsin's Marinette Middle School are outraged over a recent game that they say is inappropriate and leads to bullying.

The parents say school leaders forced their kids to play the game called "Cross the Line" which calls on the students to reveal personal information about themselves and their families.

She said her daughter chose not to play, and was threatened with an in-school suspension.
