It would make a difference if we backed it up. It is pointless to have a law & not have administration or staff or anyone back the law up. We have to follow through with it. Practice what we preach.

Anti-bullying laws are a step in the right direction, but the school districts need to be 100% on board in implementing and enforcing these laws. The school districts in Delaware and elsewhere are "required" adopt a policy but accountability ends there.

At this level no. But I feel that kids need to be taught you do not lay hands on any other living thing. It needs to start at a younger age than school age, and unfortunately in our world it doesn't.

No, people put their own twist on what bullying is and what it is not. My son has been called skeletor, skinny pushed around.The principal said name calling is not bulling maybe arassment.
my son fought back got in trouble but they stopped.

I believe that bullying should be a shared responsibility between schools and parents since a child time is divided between school and home . The best answer i can give though is to avoid the and report always to school staff.

NO, I believe this law is unconstitutional because it controls free speech. I believe Parents need to teach their children not the schools. Westwood schools should concentrate on the fundamentals and stop taking the parents role.

Freakette--you have a valid argument. The problem is that bullying isn't always one-on-one. More often than not, it is a mass effort. Your suggestion is unrealistic--to have one kid fight off 20 for the sake of self-sufficiency.

Absolutely. I agree with most of the people who say that it needs to be consistent, and that the staff needs to be held accountable. Kids need to learn resiliency also, but not at the 2nd or 3rd grade level.
