Carmel Incident Brings Up Bullying Laws
Indiana is one of 40 states that has anti-bullying laws on the books -- and State Senator Tom Wyss (R-Fort Wayne) says it's important for schools to implement and follow through on current laws.
He says he would like to see legislation written that makes schools more accountable than currently required. He says it's also imperative to be aware of cyber bullying and making sure laws are there to protect students.
James Brown is a researcher at the IUPUI School of Social Work and says Indiana's law, as it stands protects schools and school officials, not students. He says the bill says schools do not have to worry about state law or worry if they do not comply.
Indiana's law was insituted in 2005.
