NUTLEY - A month after New Jersey passed the "Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights," students at John Walker Middle School in Nutley took part today in training meant to prevent bullying.

The legislation, considered to be among the strongest anti-bullying legislations in the country, requires schools to provide training to students and parents on how to recognize and combat bullying.

While many school administrators support the anti-bullying measure, they say they haven't been provided with the resources necessary to comply with the law.
