Local senator gets violence prevention act approved

N.C. Sen. Tommy Tucker, whose district covers part of Union County, recently got his School Violence Prevention Act signed into law.

The act addresses the issue of school violence and provides teachers with protections, according to a news release from Tucker’s office, by ensuring, among other things, school employees won’t face civil or criminal liability when acting in good faith to end a student altercation and students who go online to intimidate or harass school employees will face cyber-bullying charges.
