New Jersey is supposed to have one of the toughest school bullying laws in the country, but a News 12 investigation finds too often it doesn't work. Some school districts are not being truthful over how often bullying happens. Parents who file complaints often feel they have no one on their side. And the law is so specific that cases that seem like obvious bullying don't qualify.
