D.C. Mayor To Announce Plan For Preventing Bullying
WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray is announcing a citywide plan to deal with bullying.
The mayor plans to announce a four-step plan Wednesday evening ahead of a scheduled private screening of the new documentary “Bully.”
The steps include the formation of a 14-member task force, including schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson and Police Chief Cathy Lanier; a new research report; creating a model policy; and holding a forum on bullying for D.C. agencies.
