Earlier this month, both of us met with the superintendents of the state’s public school districts to discuss with them our concern about the issue of bullying in our state’s schools.
Our message was very direct. We believe that it is time for the state to become more diligent about its anti-bullying efforts. We were pleased to hear a similar level of commitment from the heads of our school districts.
The facts about bullying are largely undisputed. As U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said earlier this year at a White House conference on bullying, students involved in bullying are more likely to struggle in school, use drugs and alcohol, and have physical and mental-health issues that can linger well into adulthood.
Delaware has a strong anti-bullying law. The problem is that the law is not being uniformly followed. Delaware’s law requires that schools report incidents of bullying to the following: the parents of the victim, the parents of the child who did the bullying, and the State Department of Education.
It appears from state data that many schools are not reporting bullying incidents to the state. And because they are not reporting to the state, which is the easiest of the reports to make, we are confident that they are also not reporting all incidents to the parents of the children involved.
