ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland first lady Catherine Curran O’Malley has held a Google Plus video chat to talk about the state’s efforts to stop bullying in schools.

The first lady spoke Tuesday evening from the Governor’s Reception Room in Annapolis with Lillian Lowery, the state’s superintendent of schools, and Ann Chafin, the assistant state superintendent of schools. They were joined in the online chat by experts on bullying.

O’Malley has made the issue a priority of the first lady’s office. She says the state has worked to increase awareness by partnering with Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, Facebook and Time Warner’s Cartoon Network.

O’Malley says there’s still too much bullying that takes place, and she wants to keep working with schools, students and parents to address the problem.
