BULLYING — HOW FAR IS TOO FAR?

Apparently, New Jersey has had it with bullying in East Hanover, Elizabeth and North Hunderton.

Bullying in East Hanover schools can be reported to the police by their classmates this fall through anonymous tips to the Crimestoppers hot line.

In Elizabeth, children from kindergarten up will spend six class periods learning the difference between telling and tattling.

At North Hunterdon High School, students are told that there is no such thing as an innocent bystander. If they see bullying happening, they have a responsibility to stop it.

Propelled by public outcry over the suicide of a Rutgers University freshman, Tyler Clementi, the new law, known as the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights, is considered the toughest legislation against bullying in the nation.

Many educators think this legislation has gone too far. But after seeing, first hand, the lack of respect by students and the lack of control by the teachers in our own schools (and the indifference by some parents), I think it’s about time for heavier enforcement of current laws, and implementing any additional laws that can completely eliminate this huge crisis.
