Majority of parents and school staff want bullying crackdown

September 20, 2017

Support is building for South Australian Conservatives' push to prevent bullying in South Australian schools.

The Adelaide Advertiser reports that over 80 per cent of parents and school staff want tougher laws to make it easier to prosecute bullies, including jail time of up to a decade.

The question of penalties for serial bullies became a political issue in the wake of the tragic death of an Adelaide schoolgirl last month.

The Australian Conservatives have vowed to push legislation that could be in place by the start of the 2018 school year, including jail terms.
