Fighting Suicide/Bullying In Idaho

  BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A suicide-prevention group is hoping to
raise awareness about school bullying with a measure that's now in
front of the Idaho Legislature. The Suicide Prevention Action
Network of Idaho hopes to encourage teachers to intervene when they
see kids being targeted by bullies. According to their bill
introduced yesterday in the Senate Judiciary Committee, schools
would be able to draft their own policies to handle students who
harass, intimidate or bully their classmates. Schools also would
have to report incidents of bullying annually to the state.
