KVEO - Sophie Martinez is getting ready to start her senior year at Texas' La Joya High School.

One problem is always in the back of her mind: bullying.

Martinez said she has never been bullied, but stories about bullying from her friends really give her concern.

"It has gotten worse throughout the years. Every year I notice a difference," said Martinez.

Now a new bullying law, going into affect September 1st, brings hope.

The new law actually allows administrators to remove a bully from the school he or she was causing problems.

Students are skeptical of the idea that relocating a bully will work.

"It is a good idea, it will help the school that it is happening at, but then I think about the other school, like what are they going to do? You can't just keep them contained in a little box by themselves, but just to help them to understand what they are doing is wrong," said Martinez.
