Seth’s Law – California Anti Gay and Homosexual School Bullying Law:  Seth’s law is a new anti bullying law that helps protect California public school children.  The law required public school in California to update anti-bullying policies, with a specific focus on preventing and reducing the prevalence of bullying against the Gay Lesbian and Transgender community enrolled in California Public Schools.  Also School districts are compelled by Seth’s law to  adopt a process for receiving and investigating complaints of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying.
