Minnesota law against bullying one of weakest in the nation

A six-month investigation by Minnesota Public Radio reveals that bullying occurs on a regular basis throughout the Minnesota school district. The state law against bullying is "the shortest in the nation," and fails to identify anti-bullying policies or punishments for violation. MPR reporter Tom Weber found "virtually no tracking" of bullying episodes, which makes it even more difficult to evaluate how schools handle the incidents or take measures to prevent them. The Minnesota law does not define "bullying," nor does it require state Department of Education officials even review the policies.
