Texas to Define Bullying in Schools

Texas to Define Bullying in Schools


Texas lawmakers intend to hammer out an authoritative definition of bullying early next year.

According to KWTX, at least seven bills relating to bullying in schools and online have already been filed for consideration in the legislature next session, which opens January 11. Two of those bills would require schools to report annually on its incidents of bullying, making note of which were based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

Although current Texas law mandates that schools include language prohibiting bullying in student codes of conduct, there is little on the books saying how schools should go about doing that and even less to give a clear definition of what constitutes bullying.
