Pennsylvania Cracks Down on Hazing in Secondary Schools


The article, “Pennsylvania Cracks Down on Hazing in Secondary Schools,” featured in Penn Record, reported on a new legislation requiring secondary schools in Pennsylvania to adopt policies and procedures to prevent and correct hazing that will go into effect on July 25.

Michael Galey provided commentary on why the bill was created.

“The bill was prompted by recent stories regarding hazing in secondary school settings, particularly with respect to sports teams, as well as recent research from anti-hazing advocacy groups that shows 47 percent of high school students experience hazing,” Michael Galey, an attorney at Fisher and Phillips in Philadelphia, told the Pennsylvania Record.
