There’s one (or more) in every school. I’m talking about the mean girls and the bullies. Some might say that dealing with their wrath is a rite of passage. But really, there comes a time when enough is enough, especially when bullying can lead to serious consequences like suicide.
In the near future, bullying could be one less thing students have to worry about in New York public schools. Last month, the state Senate passed the Dignity for All Students Act. Now, the only thing needed for this bill to become law is Governor Paterson’s signature. If the bill passes, New York will be the 43rd state to adopt such a law.
