Senate Education Committee Passes Anti-Bullying Bill
A very controversial anti-bullying bill was passed Yesterday by the Senate Education Committee. It raises some questions on who exactly the new law would protect.
Supporters say the bill will turn Minnesota’s current bullying law – one of the nation’s weakest – into one of the strongest, with clear definitions of bullying, training for students and staff, and specific procedures for bullying incidents.
Others say the bill wouldn’t protect all children from bullying.
