Bullying - Government Takes Steps to Intercede

I received an email from Sylvan Dell Publishing today. It discussed the Government's the new guidelines for educators, initiated October 26th, in regard to bullying:

If school administrators fail to properly deal with repeated discriminatory harassment based on gender, race, disability, or ethnicity, they risk being cited for contributing to a pattern of civil rights violations that could, in extreme cases, lead to a cut in federal funding.

While this is very good news, I'm wondering why if the incident of bullying isn't related to one of the above scenarios it doesn't warrant attention and repercussion for the bully. Any form of bullying is atrocious and should be handled quickly and effectively.

But, in any event, in connection with the new guidelines and to bring attention to bullying, Sylvan Dell is featuring and allowing everyone access for all of November, to How the Moon Regained her Shape, a children’s picture book by author Janet Ruth Heller.

Heller was a victim of bullying throughout her childhood. When she began writing for children, Heller wanted to help other kids cope with bullies. Drawing on her own experiences, she wrote How the Moon Regained her Shape. 

Teachers can use How the Moon Regained Her Shape to help their children understand bullying and learn ways to cope with bullies.
