Sen. Black's bullying passes Senate

Sen. Diane Black's (R-Gallatin) bullying bill has passed the Senate. The bill standardizes the procedures for dealing with bullying in Tennessee schools. While we don't always agree with Sen. Black on matters of policy, this is is a good bill. TEP congratulates Sen. Black on the unanimous passage of this important bill. We urge the House to take it up quickly and do the same. Our public schools ought to be places that are safe for all children to pursue their education without violence or intimidation.
