Research questions anti-bullying campaigns

A new UT Arlington study finds that students attending schools with anti-bullying initiatives may be more likely to be a victim of bullying than children at schools without such  programs, WGN 720 in Chicago reported on the Mike McConnell Show. "One possible reason for this is that the students who are victimizing their peers have learned the language from these anti-bullying campaigns and programs," said Seokjin Jeong, an assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice at UT Arlington and lead author of the study. Jeong's research also was featured on WOAI 1200 in San Antonio and in Science Newsline.

Second amendment misinterpreted in textbook

Joseph Ignagni, a UT Arlington political science professor, said modern texts sometimes misinterpret the Second Amendment in a CBS 11 KTVT story about a textbook used in a  Denton Guyer High School class. Ignagni pointed to the landmark DC v. Heller Supreme Court decision of 2008, in which the justices in a 5-4 vote declared the Federal Government could not pass a law restricting individual rights to guns.
