This week we're addressing the issue of bullying in schools. According to an article in the weekly Observer & Eccentric newspaper, state Sen. Glenn Anderson (D-Westland) is pushing forward with “Matt's Safe School Law.” The legislation was given its name in honor of Matt Epling, 14, an East Lansing student who committed suicide after being subjected to constant tormenting by older students while in middle school.
What are your thoughts on school bullying? If passed, the law would require school districts to adopt anti-bullying policies.
