New Jersey Anti-Bully Law Revoked for Lack of Funding

New Jersey recently instituted an Anti-Bullying law, forcing schools to be more active in teaching against bullying. The anti-bullying law was put in place to protect students from experiencing something similar to what Tyler Clementi, a Rutger’s student, experienced just before committing suicide. After having his roommate set up a webcam in their shared dorm room to video tape his homosexual activities, Tyler experienced public shame and his resulting actions led to more attention to this horrible phenomenon within public schools.
