I tried to find the old posts.. lets just say that the school was praying that the kid would go to jail because of a statement. He was bullied, and the teacher didn't do anything about it. In fact, I hear she instigated it.

Well bullying is in every school not just GR. I know this parents feelings, I have been to school and talked to everyone from the top to the bottom. I have called the board and talked to them and nothing was ever done. It's a shame that people let crap like this go on. My child was picked on for ever over his weight,looks etc... Children are crul and the parents and teachers are even worse for letting this go on. You never know when you send your child to school what will happen. I would have never dreamed my child would face such issues he is a strait A student, athelitic wears the best but he is stocky. My point is it's about time that someone is hurd over this issue.

All you have to do is call the police, BUT you have to have first-hand knowledge not hearsay. Principals need to call the police and let them handle it. Bad press over calling is not half as bad as press after a child takes his own life!

To concern parent: You are apparently nothing but a trouble maker going from thread to thread trying to stir up trouble. Sounds to me like YOU are as much of a bully as anyone. Pathetic.

every time a student or parent reports bullying it is addressed at GRH. No one instigated this, several people tried to intervene. The Advocate did a fairly good job of presenting both sides of this issue but it didn't know the whole story. this specific issue was addressed several times, in several ways, as well as several others this year by class discussions, behavior contracts, actual in class programs by more than one agency and discussions with parents. This child has obviously not reported any of this back his parents because they think nothing was ever done to try and stop the hurtful behavior.
Knox County schools have a bullying policy but we can't see or hear everything said and done. It is up to personal choice as to how each child is going to conduct themselves when they think no one is looking or no one can hear the same as it is for adults. Those people who fire up topix with hurtful opinions when they know nothing about a situation have the same personal choice; to make a bad situation better or to make it worse with rumors, gossip and slander. Most children practice what they are modeled at home.

so why did the child attempt suicide at school if all these things are in place?
