Minn. House Passes Anti-Bullying Bill « CBS Minnesota.

The Minnesota House has passed a bill requiring all public school districts to create policies aimed at reducing bullying. The bill passed Monday by a vote of 72-57. It was introduced after a rash of high-profile bullying incidents in school districts across the state.

There’s a lot of disagreement about whether the state should impose bullying standards on all local schools. Critics said it will create more bureaucracy, but might not reduce bullying.

The bill requires every school district to have anti-bullying policies, investigate complaints and keep records.
