Wyoming Department of Education takes on bullying in Wyoming Schools

Jan 13, 2012

Listen to the Story

In 2009 the Wyoming legislature passed a very aggressive anti-bullying law for Wyoming schools.  It required all school districts to develop and implement a plan for how to deal with bullying.  It involves both prevention and how schools deal with bullying.  Some suggest that the problem is being overblown, while other districts suggest that this is a serious matter.  Coming up we will hear from all sides.  We begin our discussion with State Superintendent Cindy Hills, and the head of the safe schools initiative in the state Bruce Hayes.  They speak with Wyoming Public Radio’s Bob Beck.
