The article explores the Massachusetts anti-bullying statute and regulations. It discusses the failure of Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in promoting more sensitive regulations to account for the statute's disproportionately negative effect on youth whom are bullied based on their sexual orientation. It discusses the harmful effects of the notice requirement policy of the statute on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth.
