(ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo.) – School bullying has been a nationwide problem, and officials in Wyoming are working to make sure students get the protection they need.
The state education department is working with school administrators to stress the importance of character building in their lesson plans. They say students are being encouraged to communicate with school counselors and social workers to help them cope with any serious issues. A recent survey found that about half of Wyoming’s junior high students had been bullied, while about a quarter of all high school students had dealt with it.
