Skip to comments.Anti-bullying bill passes Minnesota House
Posted on 05/07/2013 7:34:20 AM PDT by TurboZamboni
The state would set up a "school climate center" and individual districts would face additional reporting, training and other requirements to reduce school bullying under a bill passed by the Minnesota House on Monday, May 6. The bill passed 72-57, with all the support from Democratic-Farmer-Laborers and all the opposition from Republicans. The companion bill is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate E-12 finance subcommittee Tuesday. Bill sponsor Jim Davnie, DFL-Minneapolis, said the measure would take Minnesota from having one of the weakest anti-bullying laws in the country to "instead being a leader in building safe and supportive school climates for all students."

Yay thought control!
Why is it that I see these new powers doing absolutely nothing to protect the kids who are being assaulted by thugs, in the school ground and on the bus, every day, and will instead bring the full force of government down on anyone who makes a peaceful and principled statement of opposition to homosexuality?
THAT'S the anti-bully bill that always worked, and that's why America is in trouble ... too many so-called parents don't teach and discipline their kids.
Notice I didn't say "correct their kids" ...
Correction comes from within
The blueness of the wound cleanseth the inward parts.
Does this mean that Dan “You Savage” Savage is banned from entering Minnesota? Bob
the only way to survive bullies....is to SURVIVE BULLIES.
kids will never get tough unless they GET TOUGH.
it is natures way of separating the wheat from the chaff.
As far as the Progressives and Nanny staters protecting everyone from everything...IT DONT WORK...it weakens the country there Mr/Mrs/Mizzz Percy Dovetonsils
“Any kind of criticism or disagreement can be construed as “bullying” by the recipient.”
Criticism of white conservative males? Freeper, please.
They have to construct victim classes that are the only ones protected. A homosexual kid can bully anyone who disagrees with them.
“instead being a leader in building safe and supportive school climates for all students.”
That statement, in and of itself, fully illustrates the almost immeasurable vapidity and stupidity of politicians and (obviously) liberals.
It will do nothing of the kind, and will only result on more legal bull Obama stinking up the already polluted atmosphere surrounding public schools.
Get your child OUT of pub(l)ic schools.
All the Democrats solution will do is spend money.
Teachers and Principals can only do something about bullying if they can detect it.
Kids are not stupid. They learn by the age of five that if they want to do something wrong they do it when adults are not in the room and bullying happens when teachers and principals are not in the room or it happens away from school.
Schools will not do anything about bullying without actually witnessing bullying. These laws will do not much but waste tax payers money.
If parents had school choice they wouldn’t have to send their kid to a school that put up with bullies and waste 20 million trying to figure out how write an expulsion letter.
Once you actually read them these “anti-bullying” bills always turn out to be pro-homosexual indoctrination bills.
That must be Ted Cruz’s giant fist, right?
This is about not allowing kids to call a queer a queer.
We didn’t call ‘em queers.
We were a lot more blunt about it than that.
I am admittedly ancient but back in my day, there were no “out of the closet” queers. I knew one kid, who tried hard to hide his femininity, even taking a girl to the prom. When asked about his sexuality, he would deny being queer. Years later, after he had moved to another and much larger city, he “came out”.
Denying his queerness in high school, kept his ass from getting kicked on a daily basis. I’m not advocating kicking queer asses at any age but sure wish the stigma were reattached and they’d just shut up about their sexuality.
How bout a bill to restrict the incessant bullying and swindling of taxpayers by career politicians seeking to buy themselves the next seat of power. We need bills to restrict government bullying, corruption, and terms of service.
“Bullying” = Saying anything against homosexuality.
DING, DING, DING...we have a winner!
IMHO, all this stuff is right up there with “gun-free zones.”
Harry Reid to Ted Cruz: My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully
EVERYTHING not in agreement with leftist dogma is “bullying”.
There are laws that cover “bullying”
Disorderly conduct, harassment, simple assault etc.
No law is needed if we simply applied the laws that exist.
[[it is natures way of separating the wheat from the chaff.]]
Ah but it’s not hte liberals way- they own’t be content until all kids are metrosexuals
When I was in school, the lesbians in gym class did most of the bullying.
[[It will do nothing of the kind, and will only result on more legal bull Obama stinking up the already polluted atmosphere surrounding public schools.]]
So when a teacher forces their students to worship in a mosque (as they did in boston) the parents will be able to sue the school for bullying hteir kids
When teachers belittle kids for beign conservatives, their parents can sue the school for bullyign hteir kids
When Christian kids are ridiculed for their faith and treated differently by staff than other kids, their parents can then sue the school for bullying their kids-
When Christian kids are told to stop prayign in school, and swtop carryign and displayign hteir bible, they can sue hteir school for bullying them-
When kids are told they can’t display religious symbols such as neclaces of crosses, or even t-shirts with a religiosu logo- they can sue gtheir school for bullying them
This is not goign to go well- in a liberal’s mind, only liberal atheist kids and homosexuals are victims of bullying
[[All the Democrats solution will do is spend money.]]
Well, no, it wil ldo more than that- it will get kids suspended or expelled from school for pointign to the sky after a touchdown or basket or goal- it will get kids suspended or expelled from school for mentioning God or Jesus on school grounds- etc etc etc
[[We need bills to restrict government bullying, corruption, and terms of service.]]
They are above the law- they can bully Christians and peopel of morality, and htey can rob peopel in any ivnentive ways that they like- but they are exempt fro mtheir own laws agaisnt bullying
[[No law is needed if we simply applied the laws that exist.]]
Those laws didn’t go far enough in violating hte right to free speech of Christians and peopel of faith and morality- this new bill will go that far-
The bill should be relabeled, Anti-opposition to sexual perverts, queer rimmers, felchers, and gerbiling proponents.
I developed an anti-bullying policy about 45 years ago. It was called my fist. It was very effective and the bullies left me alone after it was strenuously deployed.
