Leaders in the Tennessee House of Representative are moving forward with anti-bullying legislation that lacks specific reforms needed to protect students in our schools. HB2122 sponsored by Rep. Mark White is a good bill, but it doesn’t go far enough.
To be effective, the bill must be amended by the House Education Committee to include enumerated protections against harassment, intimidation, or bullying based on the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, academic achievement, sexual orientation, disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or physical appearance of either the student or a person with whom the student has an actual or perceived association.
Use TEP’s petition to tell the House Education Committee to pass enumerated protections with an amendment to HB2122.
