KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas Education Commissioner, citing constant feedback from parents, is launching a task force on school bullying.

Commissioner Randy Watson announced the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Bullying Tuesday.

The 25 to 30 member task force will start work in April, with the hopes of providing recommendations by December.

“Everywhere I go, parents want to discuss this,” Watson said in a release. “There are no easy answers.”

The task force will be co-chaired by Rick Ginsberg, dean of the University of Kansas School of Education and James Regier, superintendent of the Whitewater-Remington school district northeast of Wichita, Kansas.
