Enough is enough.
The word from San Antonio State Senator Jose Menendez–who said the recent death of an Alamo Heights High School student–possibly as the result of bullying–is a loud and clear call for action.
“We feel horrible–and, we need to see what we can do as a community to put an end to this” Menendez told KTSA News, explaining his plan to bring a “David’s Law” to the Texas Legislature.
“How we can address the issue of cyber bullying–and bullying in general in our schools–and what we can do to give parents and teachers and school districts all of the resources they need to help children find a better solution” Menendez said, explaining what he’d like to see the measure include.
“It’s gotten to a point where its (bullying) happening far too much” Menendez said, adding “These young people are using their computers and their phones and their ipads and all of these apps as weapons to assail and assault people.”
In the meantime, Menendez will host a community workshop on cyber bullying Thursday Night from 7 until 8 at the San Antonio Independent School District’s Burnet Center on Barrera Street.
