Between the Lines reports success in lobbying the Michigan House to pass legislation requiring schools to adopt anti-bullying and anti-harassment policies. The legislation now moves to the Michigan Senate where its fate is uncertain. The conservative opposition is telling. They oppose such legislation, apparently, because it could help LGBT children. And yes, the legislation would help protect those kids from harassment in school but it doesn’t stop there. It would protect all children from bullying and harassment: the Jewish kid, the Catholic kid, or the just plain odd kid. The legislation will now be referred to the Senate Education committee. Unfortunately the chair of that committee, Sen. Wayne Kuippers, is on record opposing anti-bullying legislation.
