Create a culture of caring, reduce bullying and youth violence.
The CHARACTER COUNTS! approach to bullying is to create a school culture in which bullying is not acceptable and not tolerated. By emphasizing the Six Pillars of Character, schools send a clear message to students: Bullying, or even standing by idly while it happens, is just not something a person of character does.

Are anti-bullying programs required by law in your state?
Many states have passed legislation requiring anti-bullying programs or policies at schools. BullyPolice.org tracks and evaluates those laws. Similarly, the National Conference of State Legislatures keeps track of what states are doing to legislate against cyberbullying, cyberstalking, and other forms of online harassment.
The Department of Education has recently published a report detailing model state bullying policies, information on what states have enacted bullying laws and when, and a comprehensive analysis of policies and laws.
