It’s good to see Las Vegas City school officials grappling with the problem of bullying. Not only are they taking the matter seriously, but they’re being open about how the problem exists, persists and must be addressed.
Superintendent Richard Romero is right to make it a top priority. Bullying isn’t a “kids will be kids” issue; at best, it’s a form of harassment, at worst it’s, well, terrorism. In a few cases, it even results in someone’s death.
