Bullying has real, documented negative effects on children’s development and educational outcomes. It is in the federal government’s interest to prevent bullying in school environments, and to withhold funding from schools or school districts that fail to prevent bullying.
While more needs to be done to address and prevent bullying in schools, a federal mandate that school officials report bullying incidents to law enforcement goes too far and inhibits the ability of state and local educational authorities to develop their own best practices.
