KS Legislature wants more anti-bullying programs

The Kansas Legislature has passed a new bill requiring schools to offer anti-bullying programs, though the Journal-World's story doesn't get too much into the specifics, regarding how often it has to be offered, etc. The goal is to teach bullies to be more sympathetic and the picked-upon to have better "resiliency skills."

Proponents also say this might prevent school violence, since a lot of school shooters are students who've been bullied.
