National investigation planned

Japan responded swiftly to investigate bullying among all of its primary and middle schools following a recent teen suicide. I shared an excerpt from an earlier story when the news first became public. The national response has been impressive to see. The question in my mind is, “When Japan completes its investigation will they implement new programs and reporting systems or will the government step to the forefront to create a nationwide media campaign. Given the short time needed to mobilize a nationwide investigation I would expect Japan has already started work on changing their approach to bullying prevention. Watch this story develop in the coming weeks.
