Bullying and the Law

Bullying has become a national epidemic among school-aged children in America, and should be of concern to most schools today. Because bullying can take many forms -- such as verbal, physical, and even mental acts -- it can sometimes go unnoticed by teachers, parents, and administrators alike. Still, because bullying on school campuses can escalate to serious violence and harm to a student, it is especially important for educators, teachers, and parents to understand what bullying is and how to prevent it. This section provides an overview of bullying as well as a breakdown of state anti-bullying laws. Click on the links below to learn more or visit our education law legal answers page.
