Legislation seeking to establish a statewide definition for bullying in schools has passed the state House.  

Members of the Kentucky House Education Committee are backing legislation to define ‘bullying’ in public schools. Sponsor Rita Smart of Richmond says ‘harassment’ is defined, but not bullying and she believes it would serve to heighten awareness of the issue.

Two out of every ten students experience bullying, says Susan Guess of the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation. While this is an improvement, Guess says  it's still a large number of students and is unacceptable. She says we need to be intentional about how we treat one another and is demonstrating this in the first annual Paducah Kindness Color Walk planned for August 8th in Noble Park. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with Guess about the event and other anti-bullying efforts.
