Twenty-one states have passed laws this year aimed at preventing and reducing bullying in schools. The laws vary in scope with the most far-reaching in New Jersey requiring schools to employ specialized personnel and report all incidents to the state. Many states also are working to address online bullying, provide new protection for victims of bullying, and are requiring new training for teachers on bullying prevention. In some states, however, budget constraints are making it challenging to implement such programs.
New laws on bullying are adopted in 21 states
