    Education Dept. Issues Warning on Bullying

    Hey crew,

    I found this article and I thought it might strike a chord with some of you. On October 26th, "More than 15,000 schools and school districts, as well as 5,000-plus colleges and universities, received a critical reminder Tuesday from the U.S. Department of Education: "To put it simply, in this country, we don't believe bullying should exist," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

    "To that end, the Department of Education's new guidance makes clear that some student bullying actually violates federal anti-discrimination laws that protect gay, lesbian and transgendered students as well as members of other protected groups." (This is not a WebMD site, and we cannot guarantee content).

    Were you bullied in school because of being GLBTT? Do you think this note is a step in the right direction?
