Bill against school bullying adopted

The bill against school bullying has been adopted by the Senate as the decisive Chamber of Parliament. A section that explicitly stipulates the definition and prevention of bullying, psychological assistance but also the training and informing of the teaching staff as regards the problems generated by this type of behaviour has thus been added to the National Education Law.

Thus, violence that can take a physical form – kicking, tripping, shoving, slapping – or a verbal form – name calling, insulting, teasing, intimidating, hazing – will be banned by law and measures will be taken so that it is tackled in all educational cycles: elementary school, middle school and/or high school.

The bill that defines, prevents and bans psychological violence – bullying – has modified and supplemented National Education Law no.1/2011. The bill was adopted on Monday by the Senate, as the decisive Chamber of Parliament. House lawmaker Andrei Pop (PSD), secretary of the Committee on Budget, Finances and Banks, and House lawmaker Petre-Florin Manole (PSD), member of the Committee on Human Rights, Denominations and the Issues of National Minorities, are among the initiators of the bill.

The bill was adopted unanimously by the Senate. A section that explicitly stipulates the definition and prevention of bullying, psychological assistance but also the training and informing of the teaching staff as regards the problems generated by this type of behaviour has thus been added to the National Education Law.

The bill had been adopted by the House on October 31.
