Prof. Doug Abrams will speak at a two-day workshop on school bullying at the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Science in Washington, D.C., on April 9-10.
In his presentation about legal and public policy issues, Prof. Abrams will urge states to: view bullying victimization as an educational disability similar to disabilities recognized by federal law, stress bullying prevention curricula in the public schools, and meet constitutional constraints on public school discipline of students who bully classmates face-to-face or by social media or similar technologies.
Prof. Abrams has explored these and other school bullying issues in the Missouri Law Review and other publications.
