Domestic Violence Education in Classrooms?

Sometimes you read an article and it leaves you a little bit speechless. This one in the South Carolina Herald did that  to me today. Titled 'South Carolina bill meant to raise awareness of dating abuse', this bill would require school districts to have specific dating polices and discipline guidelines for students in grades six through twelve. The measure would require districts to print policies in school handbooks or on the school website. The bill was approved today in a Senate Education subcommittee. The sponsor of the bill, Joan Brady hopes that this bill will raise awareness among young people who live in a state with the eighth highest rate of domestic violence. Brady also wanted to incorporate a dating violence prevention program in the health curriculum, but the state does not have the financial resources. 

I will be interested to see how the public responds to this bill.
