New York State Assembly Passes Bill Prohibiting Cyberbullying
ALBANY, N.Y. — The New York State Assembly passed a bill prohibiting cyberbullying in schools Wednesday. Schools will be required to enforce programs that will educate students and teachers about bullying and its effects and must handle any situations brought to them properly.
The law was inspired by the experience of Jamie Isaacs who was bullied from 2nd to 7th grade by nearly two dozen of her fellow students. She and her parents repeatedly complained to her school district about the bullying but a lack of action from administrators led to her leaving and enrolling in a private school. Isaacs' experience led her to become an advocate against bullying in schools.
The place for everything on our Island.
