New Jersey Holds "Week of Respect" program in schools

Started in 2010, the second annual "Week of Respect " is part of the state's anti-bullying campaign.

New Jersey's anti-bullying law is considered to be the toughest in the country. Previously, it had been recommended that schools have anti-bullying policies, but now it is required. The law was adopted after the 2010 suicide of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman whose roommate used a webcam to spy on Clementi and another man in the dorm room.

Bullying: How to Deal With Taunting, Teasing, and Tormenting, written for the middle school reader, begins with the story of one girl who was bullied in middle school. The book then addresses what bullying is, and why it is done. There is also a section about getting more information, finding Internet addresses, as well as finding more books on the topic.
