RENO, Nev. (AP) — The state of Nevada is launching an online reporting system where parents and students will be able to report bullying.
According to the National Education Association, one in four kids are taunted or beaten at school and one in 10 kids who are bullied eventually drop out of school.
KOLO-TV reports the Bully Free Zone system was put together by The Office of Safe and Respectful Learning.
Schools will investigate the issue once a report is made on the Bully Free Zone’s website.
