Anti-Bullying Bill Of Rights
The report released by New Jersey’s Department of Education found the number of school bullying investigations declined by nearly 40 percent in the 2012-13 school year.
With the opening school bell today, New Jersey’s anti-bullying Bill of Rights took effect, forcing districts to investigate complaints and take action.
New Jersey lawmakers signed off Monday on what could be the toughest anti-bullying law in the nation.
The proposed changes have been in the works for months. But they’re likely to get more attention in the wake of a Rutgers University student’s suicide last month.
