In the wake of the death of Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi, the New Jersey state Senate and Assembly passed an "Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights" today (Nov. 22).
According to nj.com, the bill would require most public school
employees to get training on how to spot bullying. The law also
mandates "school safety teams" to review bullying complaints. The state
Board of Education would grade schools and districts on their efforts
to combat bullying.
