Michigan Lawmakers Consider Anti-Bullying Law

Parents, students and school social workers are urging state lawmakers to require Michigan schools to adopt anti-bullying policies.

Democrats are again trying to pass the bills, which have failed to make it into law in recent years. Republicans have opposed the bills because they say they would take away control from local school boards to decide their own policies.

Others are concerned the legislation as written might not cover all potential cases of bullying.

The legislation in the House would require schools to adopt policies prohibiting harassment and bullying. Schools also would have to have a policy in place to deal with false reports about bullying.
