Bullying is now illegal


The “bully bill” recently passed the State Senate. It would require school officials to report instances of bullying.

But what is bullying? What qualifies as bullying? Although the law is well-intentioned, and, at least in my experience, far too many teachers allow what is clearly emotionally damaging harassment to take place in their class rooms, it will nevertheless be amusing to see the inevitable abuses of the new mandate.

Or maybe it won’t change anything.
