‘Week of Respect’ Starts in New Jersey

New Jersey is holding its second annual “Week of Respect” program, which was created last year as part of the state’s anti-bullying law.

Starting Monday, public schools across the state will teach about preventing harassment, intimidation and bullying.

The state’s anti-bullying law is considered the toughest in the country. New Jersey had previously recommended schools have anti-bullying policies, but now they’re required.

The law was adopted after the 2010 suicide of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman whose roommate used a webcam to spy on Clementi’s intimate encounter with another man. The roommate was convicted in March on 15 criminal counts, including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation.
