“The bill requires schools to address cyberbullying issues that do not happen at school if they cause a significant disruption.
The bill also focuses on support for students who are bullied and who bully, Dibble said.:
So now the first couple hours of the school day can be spent checking the kids’ Facebook, Twitter, & Email accounts to make sure no one has made them feel bad?
Maybe the new school that is going to be built will have a special “I was/I am being bullied room”.
Come on, more legislation? How about common sense….let the schools use their time to teach and if the bullies don’t get it after being suspended, expel them and let the parents deal with it….like THEY should.

Remember when the legislators went after child abuse? We ended up with laws that effectively neutered the schools and parents from disciplining kids. Teaching the laws of the land right away and all throughout the school years should be a high priority. To many kids turn 18 with little knowledge of real laws and less discipline, so trouble follows. In short the bully should be punished and disciplined forthwith. We don’t need more laws we need to get ride of the laws that stop this from happening.
Well stated Deano. Bullying is not a new phenomenon, I experienced it, my kids did to some extent, I think everyone has in one form or another. I obviously don’t condone it, but new laws will not make it go away.
This starts at home with parenting and consequences need to be harsh enough the first time to not want to do it again. Just more nanny state laws from our govt. that thinks they know better.
