NJ holding its Week of Respect

    TRENTON — New Jersey is holding its first Week of Respect as mandated by the state's new anti-bullying law. It started Sunday and will run through the end of this week. Public schools across New Jersey are teaching about preventing harassment, intimidation and bullying during the week. The state's anti-bullying law, signed in January, is considered the toughest in the country. New Jersey had previously recommended schools have anti-bullying policies, but now they're required. The law was adopted after the suicide last year of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman whose roommate is accused of using a webcam to spy on Clementi's intimate encounter with another man.
