The purpose of this study was to conduct a policy analysis of Seth’s Law 2012. Bullying on school campuses is a severe and pervasive problem that has been shown to cause detrimental risk factors and negative outcomes for many LGBTQ youth. This study utilized a qualitative design, collecting data from primary and secondary sources that addressed this legislation. Results indicate that LGBTQ youth are bullied at higher rates than heterosexual youth. Additionally, the results indicated that stricter anti-bullying legislation that holds the Department of Education and its school districts accountable for following such laws is needed. Implications for social work practice, policy, and research were discussed.
