FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 9, 2010 - Apple Valley, Minn.) – Minnesota Second District Congressional candidate Shelley Madore responded today to recent intense media coverage about the serious consequences of bullying in schools.

"I was shocked to learn that the lead Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee, incumbent Representative John Kline, voted against The Safe Schools 
Improvement Act," said Madore. "This important legislation was designed to protect our children from harassment, humiliation, and torturous bullying."

The SSIA would call on schools and districts that receive federal funds to adopt
 anti-bullying policies and codes of conduct that specifically prohibit bullying or harassment on the 
basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation and perceived or actual
 gender identity. More than 120 organizations supported this legislation including ARC, PACER Center 
and the Autism Society.

“As anyone who has been through adolescence knows,” said Shelley Madore, “Harassment and bullying can take an incredible toll on a child’s education and daily mental and physical well-being. As a mother of two children with disabilities, this resonates even more.”

“How could any reasonable adult deny our children a safe school environment? I believe we need to evaluate our legislator’s position on moving beyond partisanship and working to protect our students. When our children leave in the morning, as parents we expect that they will be safe in school. John Kline’s record shows he does not believe that we should have that assurance.”

“My heart goes out to the families where bullying has taken the ultimate toll. As your next Congressperson, I will work hard to provide a world-class education and safe schools for every student.”
