MA House Votes for Bullying Legislation

The Massachusetts House has voted 148-0 for a bill that would attempt to clamp down on bullying in the state’s schools. The measure requires teachers and other school staff to report bullying to the principal, who then must investigate and determine a course of action. The bill includes elements that address online bullying as well. Earlier this month, the State Senate passed a similar bill and the 2 versions must now be reconciled by conference committee. WFCR’s Kevin McNicholas has more.
