NJ Bill Targets Teen Dating Violence

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey school districts may soon have to incorporate age-appropriate dating violence education into their middle and high school curricula.

The mandate is part of legislation that was approved earlier this month by a state Assembly panel. It would also require that faculty and staff be trained to recognize and handle dating violence among students.

And the state Department of Education would have to establish a task force to develop a policy to prevent and address dating violence at schools.

That policy would have to contain, at a minimum, a statement that dating violence will not be tolerated. It also would have to include details on reporting incidents.

    TEEN DATING, ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS WATCH T.V. WATCH A LITTLE AND THEY ALL KNOW HOW TO ACT LIKE ADULTS. T.V. TODAY IS LIKE WATCHING PORN, THERE’S NOT ONE SHOW TODAY THAT DOES NOT HAVE SEX IN IT TO LET TEENS KNOW HOW EASY IT IS TO HAVE SEX. IN TODAY’S WORLD SEX IS THE NEW WORD FOR LEARNING. SO NO MATTER WHAT THEY TRY TO DO TO HELP TEENS, TEENS WILL NOT LISTEN.ONLY TRY EVERYTHING THEY WANT TO DO. TEENS ARE OUT OF CONTROL THANKS TO HOLLYWOOD, THE TRUE LET-DOWN TO TEENS.
