1st state count: Schools see 1,431 bullying cases
Question of the Day
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - In the first year when Connecticut law requires school districts to report bullying, 1,431 incidents have been documented.
Hearst Connecticut Newspapers reports (http://bit.ly/1idJGH1 ) the numbers account for all incidents in the 2012-13 school year in which a bullying incident was investigated. The numbers are broken down by district and school.
State Department of Education bureau chief John Frassinelli says schools and districts look at bullying differently. He says some may label incidents that increase their number and others may have higher thresholds.
The Connecticut Technical High School system reported the most incidents, 86. That school district was followed by Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport.
State law requires bullying complaints to be investigated and documented. School employees must report bullying and share findings with parents of the bully and the victim.
