Rejected petition Consequences of bullying to be a compulsory topic taught in schools

There are too many cases of horrific bullying where children are seriously hurt mentally & physically & even some who have ended their own lives to escape the bullying. This is not acceptable, it has to change. Educating children very early on of the consequences of bullying could really help.
