  • Virginia State Dels. Adam Ebbin and David Englin have introduced anti-bullying bills that would make bullying in school a crime, and give schools more tools to protect victims of bullying. According to Ebbin, "No student in Virginia should be afraid to attend school." However, opponents argue that bullying is a matter that should be handled by parents or school administrators. What do you think? You can watch WTVR's video coverage of the anti-bullying legislation here.
