Bullying Numbers Tallied Statewide
Thanks to anti-bullying legislation passed by legislators last year, schools in Tennessee now have to track bullying cases and report them to the state. Locally, Johnson City reported the second most instances in the state with 427. Hawkins County reported 127, Sullivan County says they had 68 cases, Bristol reported 51 and Kingsport didnít report any. Kingsport school officials say itís not because they didnít have any bullying in their school system, that number was a result of inadequate documentation throughout the school year. Those numbers were compiled during the 2012-13 school year. State leaders hope the new program will help educators figure out ways to end bullying all together.
