Our Series On Bullying Rides Again
Bullying of children with disabilities remains the hottest of hot button issues in special education law. Unfortunately bullying remains a huge problem.
We have had many requests to repeat the series on Bullying that we ran on these pages last year. The series is an in depth review of the law in this ever-changing field. NOTE special education law is a lot closer to metaphysics than it is to contract law. It is new law (ie, it didn't come over on the boat from England.) If you like hornbook rules and certainty, this may not be your field of law! Beware.
In addition to the law, our series with its posts and postscripts and updates, also provides a lot of resources that are useful to those working in this field including studies on the prevalence and effects of bullying.
So starting next week, we will be repeating the bullying series, with some relevant updates and tweaks. Please make sure that your tray tables are secure and that your seats are in their upright position...
