Bullying in Schools

Massachusetts passed a comprehensive bullying law this spring in response to the suicide of a teen girl who had been bullied (Slate did a nice brief piece on it if you’re interested in the details, but don’t want to slog through the legal language). Now the Boston Globe has started a periodic series on bullying, and their 1st installment was published this weekend. It’s a pretty lengthy article; I’ll be interested to see where they take the series. As the mother of a girl child (and a tween, god help me), this is certainly a topic to which I am paying attention.
