New Jersey Enacts Toughest Anti-Bullying Law in Nation

The toughest anti-bullying law in the nation goes into effect September 1st.  New Jersey is the first to include online bullying and harassment that occurs off school grounds in its new Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights.  Staff and students are expected to take a much more proactive role too, where teachers can be dismissed for not reporting any bullying they learn about immediately.  And students are being told they may no longer be bystanders to bullying.  What do you think?  Is this too much for staff and kids to take on during school, or should it be expected?
