Cussing At School Leads to Bullying

McKay Hatch, a very brave and intelligent sixteen year old takes on the bullies by trying to get the Senate to pass a no cussing bill for American schools. It was passed by Congress, but set aside by the Senate.

I agree with McKay that the U.S. Senate's action, or inaction as it were, is a Victory for millions of bullies. By not passing the bill, the Senate has condoned bullying. This mirrors what happens each and every day at our schools when administrators do little or nothing to stop bullying.

According to a 2 year study out of Louisiana, bullying decreased when cussing was disallowed at a Louisiana school.
