New York Gov. David Paterson signs Anti-Bullying Act
New York Gov. David Paterson signed the Dignity for All Students bill into law. The law requires school districts to make their environments harassment — and discrimination — free (by way of codes of conduct and policies) as well as reporting instances of bullying to the New York state Department of Education. Paterson said, "Bullying and harassment have disrupted the education of too many young people, and we in government have a responsibility to do our part to create learning environments that help our children prosper. I am proud to sign this bill into law as it will help ensure that students are protected from harassment, discrimination and bullying at school grounds and at school functions."
