Senator Buddy Carter discusses bullying laws

Posted: Updated:

A Georgia senator is looking to change the bullying laws in georgia.

Mackey Linton and Senator Buddy Carter sat down and discussed the importance of fighting bullying in Georgia schools.

They talked for over an hour about issues like changing some of the wording to make bullying laws easier to understand, including private and elementary schools, and to even establishing a 1-800 number for anonymously reporting bullying in Georgia.

Mackey continues to work at putting an end to bullying and has even started a Facebook page, as well as a website called www.skabkids.com , where people can go to get information, tell their story, post pictures, or leave a message.
