Making schools safe from bullying

October 2017

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey of PA

One out of three U.S. students say they have been bullied at school. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey of PA is one of several lawmakers in Washington who wants to do something about it.

Earlier this month, Sen. Casey joined students and educators to discuss his anti-bullying legislation in Norristown. His bill, the Safe Schools Improvement Act, would require school districts that receive federal education funds to adopt codes of conduct specifically prohibiting bullying and harassment. The goal is to encourage more districts to implement effective prevention programs to respond to incidents of bullying and harassment.

Education Week recently reported that Sen. Casey's plan is on a list of legislative issues that could transcend party politics and actually get done this year.
