Bullying is Not a Rite of Passage


As leaders in Congress working to update and rewrite the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)—more commonly known as No Child Left Behind—it is crucial to keep in mind, and advocate for, the millions of children and young adults whose lives are damaged every day by vicious acts of bullying and cyberbullying.

Bullying is not a rite of passage.

Too many of our kids stay home from school every day in fear of bullying. As Congress rewrites this most important federal law, we must include bullying prevention provisions.
