Bullying is rife in the American public school system. More than 20 percent of students have been bullied at least once — that’s one in five students.

A good example is Seth Walsh (whom the law is named for), who committed suicide after ignoring bullying of gay students in a California public school (Meyer, & Keenan, 2018). Seth Law’s primary goals are to implement a comprehensive anti-bullying framework optimized specifically for the LGBTQ+ community, establish a unique process for investigating and registering bullying complaints, and raise public awareness of the issue.
