House passes bullying bill

SB 0283/HB 0451 passed in House today by a vote of 90 to 2. It had previously passed 33 to 0 in the Senate. The bill requires local school districts to include certain criteria in their bullying policies. It's an advance in policy to protect our state's children from bullying at school. Congratulations and thanks to Rep. Bill Dunn (R-Knoxville) for advancing the bill in the House.
