NJ's Anti-Bully Law: A Year Old Measure in Garwood

Reacting to high profile incidents of bullying New Jersey's lawmakers passed a tough bill in November of 2010. Since then much of the burden on anti-bullying measures has been put on local teachers and school administrators.

School employees are also mandated to file a written report with principals within two days of observing or being made aware of an act of bullying, according the bill.
