I am bringing this post forward again because I am not satisfied that we are dealing with it well. If you read the comments from students here, I am worried that they believe that even if they bring it forward, nothing will be done about bullying.
They (we) need to be taught that we do not have to tolerate being bullied!
That if you do not get satisfaction from bringing a complaint forward, go to the next level!
Do not ignore when your friend, child, student, is feeling down about how they are being treated!
Together we can fight to see that no one is afraid to come to school and that everyone gets the respect they deserve!
Schools all deal with cases of bullying. Several high profile cases and their consequences have pushed me to try to bring more attention to the problem and to search for solutions. I challenge you, whether you be a student, parent, teacher, administrator, or interested community member to help me help our students avoid the pain and suffering that a bully can cause!
