Few things: one, bullying IS a serious issue and all educators I know already take bullying very seriously, but required reporting sounds more like it actually means redundant paperwork. Teachers are already overworked and under supported, so I’d like to know how this bill specifically helps teachers do what is asked. Two, what does “designated authorities” mean? If that means law enforcement, I am very much opposed to this bill as we do not need our schools to become more prison like. If it means school administrators I am on board, but how the administers handle these reports should be addressed in this bill.
