New Jersey’s governor signs anti-bullying legislation into law

2011-01-13 Bullying - Governor Christie has signed the state’s latest anti-bullying legislation into law, reports the Star-Ledger, which advocates tout as the toughest in the nation. Garden State Equality Chairman Steven Goldstein said, “Gov. Christie signed a law that is so different and so much better than anti-bullying laws that exist elsewhere across the country, that it’s stunning.” The “Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights” is intended to eliminate loopholes in the state’s first anti-bullying law, enacted in 2002, that encouraged school districts to set up programs to combat bullying but did not mandate it.
