    One measure of the scope of a problem is the attention it attracts from society in general and from the government in particular. There are support groups, programs, websites, and campaigns on Facebook, all focused on the problem of bullying. The news media regularly reports on incidents of bullying.

    Sometimes the consequences of bullying are tragic. Rebecca Sedwick, a twelve-year-old girl, tragically ended her life by jumping from a cement silo as a result of more than a year and a half of bullying by her fellow classmates, both at school and online. Another twelve-year- old, Hailee Lamberth, shot herself after being bullied daily, including name calling and several comments made by bullies such as “Drink Bleach and Die.”

    Schools have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for students and protect their students from harassment and bullying in the school environment. Since public education remains a responsibility of the states and their units of local government, the primary response of the law thus far has been at the state and local level: the adoption of statutes and state or local policies.

    This book, now revised and completely updated, reviews state statutes concerning bullying, discusses the constitutional issues that have arisen or that may arise from the application of antibullying regulations, examines the cases in which school district regulation of bullying has been addressed, reviews the existing federal guidance that is relevant to bullying, and offers some suggestions for a systemic approach to bullying.
