Watered-down anti-bullying legislation in Michigan

From the "Detroit Free Press"-

 

"The Michigan Senate passed legislation Wednesday that requires school districts to develop anti-bullying policies, but the father of the boy for whom the bill is named says he has strong objections to language inserted at the last minute.

One of the reforms will require school districts to have procedures in place to address bullying complaints. But the bill now also has language that says requirements don't "prohibit a statement of a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction of a school employee, school volunteer, pupil, or a pupil's parent or guardian."

So, if one child bullies another, or a teacher bullies a student, can we assume that "godsaidwecould"= a free pass?

 

Comments, anyone?
