New anti-bullying book
Students at Michigan State University have published a book about bullying in the age of social media. The book is a project of an advanced undergraduate journalism course on the East Lansing campus.
University spokesman Tom Oswald says the book "focuses on aspects of bullying that did not even exist until recently."
Class's instructor Joe Grimm says it relied mainly on interviews and says the students used a mixture of in-person, phone and email exchanges.
Grimm says governor Rick Snyder's signing of anti-bullying legislation in December makes this an excellent time to examine the problem.
