Maine Lawmakers Propose Measures to Combat Bullying

SOURCE: MPBN 2/11/11

Maine legislators are drafting bills to crack down on bullying and raise awareness of student harassment. Steve Wessler, Executive Director of the Center for Preventing Hate, shares his thoughts on the proposed legislation in this MPBN report.

“I think what does help is a clear statement from the Legislature, and from the governor who would sign the bill, that there is nothing more important than making sure that every single child, whether they are male or female, black or white, gay or straight, or any of the other categories, is physically and emotionally safe when in school.” – Steve Wessler
