A bullied high schooler testified in favor of proposed anti-bullying legislation in a House committee hearing.
Wrap: High school freshman Sydney Wilhelm said that her school offered no support when she was bullied by her peers.
|Description: "I spoke to the school principal and he didn't help either. He investigated the bullying so poorly that it made it worse, causing retaliation, backlash, and a loss of my friends."|
The bill would require schools to plan out how they would deal with bullying, from how to notify parents to training employees and volunteers on the requirements of new policies.
