> SCHOOL BULLYING <    > SCHOOL BULLYING <   > SCHOOL BULLYING <
State of New Jersey Guidelines on School Bullying  (Became NJ State Law on September 1, 2003)
With the increase of violence in schools generally, coupled with the sad fact that many parents allow their children to watch TV, Videos and Movies that feature (and promote) violence, the issue of the "School Bully" takes on a new urgency. When this is coupled with the fact that 'Entertainment' targeted toward teens often contains language that belittles those who don't 'run with the crowd', the stage is set for Teens getting the idea that their bullying behavior will be overlooked. Many parents have felt that some Roxbury School Teachers and Principals have taken this issue too lightly in past years and only recently are beginning to understand the seriousness of this. The definition of Bullying is not only outright violence, but can also take the form of consistent verbal harassment against a child in school or on the School Bus while away from the eyes of a Teacher. This reality seems to escape some Roxbury school staff and explains why some Roxbury parents drive their kids to and from School, rather than putting them on the bus and having them harassed by constant vulgarities, gutter talk and subtle threats. These start as early as 5th or 6th grade, and intensify in 7th and 8th, as some parents of Eisenhower Middle School students have learned.

Several concerned Roxbury School Guidance Counselors are doing what they can to set up anti-Bullying programs, and we appreciate their efforts. However, some Roxbury School Administrators, Board Members, Teachers and Phys Ed Staff still have not embraced the need to be pro-active about this serious problem, and only "do something" after a child has been traumatized. They pay "lip service" to the anti-bullying programs, while their behavior shows that they actually regard these rules as an annoyance.  While Roxbury is probably little different than other suburban districts as regards the extent of this problem, the passage in 2003 of a new state-wide law on "Bullying", gives parents  objective and measurable standards with which to hold School Administrators accountable. Download the file above which is the NJ State Guideline which took effect in September 2003.  It is an Adobe .pdf file. Save to your Computer using the Adobe File Menu. The website below has additional resources, and has a focus on our local Roxbury Township Schools.

DON'T BE AN IDIOT - DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE !!
If you drink any kind of Alcoholic beverage and then get behind the wheel, you are a potential murderer. Yes, it's that simple. Just ask the family of the Landing 18 year old who died on I-80 several  years ago after his "friend" the driver drank and then drove. More recently, another Landing driver stands accused of causing a fatal accident while 'impaired'. Consuming even small amounts of alcohol dulls the senses, increases reaction time, and hampers judgment, vision and alertness. If you consume any amount of alcohol and your driving is affected, you can be convicted of drunk driving in the State of New Jersey. Don't be an idiot. Don't drink and drive.
