Superintendents worry about bullying ban paperwork
The president of the Louisiana Association of School Superintendents says a rewritten statewide ban on bullying is an "administrative nightmare" for public schools. Michael Faulk told BESE of the association's concerns Tuesday. He says the new law, passed earlier this year, has paperwork and training requirements that could force some schools to hire new staff. The law requires anti-bullying training for school employees and teachers and allows a parent to move a child to another school if the harassment threat doesn't end. School employees are required to report bullying if they see it or hear of it, or face penalties. BESE had approved the regulations and reporting forms required by the law. BESE member Connie Bradford told Faulk that superintendents should direct concerns to lawmakers.
