The Safe Schools Improvement Act would require schools to have bullying prevention policies that protect every student in school, including the most vulnerable.
We know these policies help students. The National Taxpayers Union Foundation has found that the measure would not cost taxpayers a dime. The measure has bipartisan support in both houses. And we've learned, repeatedly and all-too-painfully, the terrible costs of failing to protect vulnerable students. That's why over 100 organizations have joined our National Safe Schools Partnership in support of this bill. So, what is Congress waiting for?
