Federal Anti-Bullying Website Is Expanded, Updated

From guest blogger Nirvi Shah:

The Obama administration is keeping a focus on anti-bullying efforts, saying today that the year-old stopbullying.gov website has a whole bunch of new information.

Maps that detail state policies about bullying are one addition. Plus there are interactive videos for young people, practical strategies for schools and communities, and suggestions on how parents can talk about bullying with their kids.

The U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services said some of the changes are in response to the March 2011 conference on bullying at the White House and another summit in September.

A recent documentary on the Cartoon Network opened with statements from President Barack Obama. (Another documentary, "Bully", that takes a different approach to the topic, is being released in movie theaters now without a rating.)

StopBullying.gov is on Twitter and Facebook, too.
