Parliament passes motion to crack down on school bullying

School personnel may soon be required by law to report bullying to the authorities, after Parliament voted through such a motion on Wednesday.

The Social Democrats, the Left party and the Greens put forward the motion, which, if it is made into a law, would oblige teachers and other staff to report their school if a student is getting harrassed, and the school doesn't act to put a stop to it.

The opposition now wants the government to present concrete proposals for a law that would mandate such action.
