Abstract

In order to tackle bullying 49 US states have put into place state-level anti-bullying policies. But what determines how comprehensive these anti-bullying laws are? In a close analysis of state anti-bullying laws, Dan Mallinson finds that states with larger populations of groups which are more vulnerable to bullying, such as LGBTQ, disabled, and minority students, as well as those with greater potential financial resources, were more likely to have more comprehensive anti-bullying legislation.
