Students demand anti-bullying police

DISTRAUGHT students are demanding schools call police or even launch legal action to deal with bullies.

The NSW Advocate for Children and Young People, Andrew Johnson, warned yesterday that most students felt teachers were turning a blind eye to bullying, the Daily Telegraph reports.

"Our ongoing consultations with thousands of children and young people across NSW, particularly those under the age of 14, highlighted that bullying is a really serious issue for them,'' he told The Saturday Telegraph.

Mr Johnson said students wanted schools "to be stricter in dealing with bullying'' by expelling troublemakers, calling in police or even suing serious offenders.
