Tina Meier, mother of bullied teen Megan Meier, testified in favor of proposed anti-bullying legislation.
Wrap: A Missouri House bill would create new policies that would make students and teachers more accountable.
Tina Meier told the committee that bullying needs to be treated differently.
|Description: And when they feel that there are adults that don't care,who say brush it off, don't worry about it, ignore it, this is why children feel that adults don't understand.|
Meier's daughter Megan hanged herself in 2006 after being bullied on her Myspace profile.
The bill would also make schools plan out their new anti-bullying policies and train employees and volunteers in the policies.
