Administrators at some Massachusetts schools say efforts to curb student bullying on campus are beginning to pay off. They say anti-bullying programs, prompted by a new state law, have served to raise awareness and change school culture, so more students are recognizing and reporting bullying behavior. While some say there still is more work to do, one principal says a type of "reverse peer pressure" has taken over, as more students are discouraging bullying among their peers.
