Bullying is a wide spread epidemic that effects children of all ages, spans into the collegiate level, and is found in the adult workforce. Bullying knows no boundaries and is quickly increasing due to social media and the internet.
North Carolina is not immune to the trauma that is bullying. Bullying has increased in severity as well as frequency. So much so that on June 30, 2009 a new bill addressing school bullying was passed by the Senate and signed by Governor Beverly Purdue.
