Missouri Must Make Bullying Illegal

This petition had 75 supporters

Bullying is one of the most common problems in our world. Not only does it occur in schools, but also in the workplace and even on the streets. The National Center of Educational Statistics reported that 1 in every 3 students reported being bullied during the 2014 school year, and approximately 64% of those students said bullying occurred twice or more that year for them. That was in 2014, though, and bullying has spread much more in the past three years.

Suicide due to bullying is one of the leading causes of death for children younger than 14 years old, and suicide rates among 10-to-14-year-old has grown over 50% in the last three decades.

The state of Missouri should pass a law to make bullying illegal. This bill can be signed by Missouri Governor Eric Greitens to come into effect, and I hope it does.
