On March 11, a coalition of groups from across NC came together with legislators to support the School Violence Prevention Act (House Bill 548; Senate Bill 526), an act that seeks to protect ALL students in North Carolina from bullying and harassment. This bill is important because it clearly defines what bullying is and common bullying targets through enumerated categories.
