California School Laws


California's AB 9, anti-bullying legislation known as “Seth’s Law,” aimed at providing California schools with “specific tools” to prevent and address pervasive bullying and create a safe education environment for all of the State’s students.

“Seth’s Law” was named in memory of Seth Walsh a 13 year-old gay student from Tehachapi, California, who killed himself in September 2010 after facing years of relentless anti-gay harassment at school that officials ignored.
