North Carolina First State to Make Bullying Teachers a Crime
In North Carolina, any and all bullying of teachers by students will be outlawed as part of a broad anti-bullying legislation that goes into effect on December 1st of this year. The School Violence Prevention Act of 2012 will make it a misdemeanor for a student to post online anything that aims to intimidate or torment a school employee. This will serve to extend the protection offered to students and their parents against cyberbullies by a 2009 law to teachers and school staff.
