I cannot believe how bad the issue with bullies is in our School system. Parents need to be more involved in their child's daily activities and homework. Talk to your kids and find out what is going on at school. If your child is accused of being a bully, don't take up for them, even if you know they are probably guilty of it, instead make sure they know it isn't right and discipline them for it. You as the parent have the responsibility to put your kids on the right path to be successful adults. Letting them get away with being a bully or walking the streets at night is not the way to do that. The parents who are strict, keep their kids off of the streets, don't allow them to be bullies and discipline them when they need it, are the parents that children respect the most.

I totally agree about how parents need to be more involved in their kids schooling. that is the main problem with our schools now, not enough local participation. However, I think all of this hype over bulling is a ruse. Its an excuse certain groups are using to support their agenda. If you dont agree with them, your bullying.

Well I am not part of a group with an agenda. I am a parent with a huge concern. It breaks my heart that some of these kids (including my own) have to go to school every day worrying about getting bullied just because they are different or don't play sports or didn't grow up knowing everyone in this town.

Cameras are only as honest as the people in control of them. Cumby school has cameras. They are never working when the star volley ball players, teachers kids, city officials kids, and other so called important town folk are caught in the wrong.

For some reason, Cooper still has a social caste system. If you aren't the child of a teacher, or a "star" on the field, or part of a family who presents themselves as rich and powerful, you're pretty much screwed. Teachers don't take bullying seriously, and often comment that "they're just playing around." People need to remember, and teach their children, that words don't dissipate after they've been spoken; when someone is bullied, they carry those hurtful words and actions with them indefinitely. We are all equal, regardless of how the majority of this town views things. If you turn your back and choose to look the other way while someone is being picked on, you are just as guilty as the bully himself.

Well they believe they are important. There are a few with a little money that forget they were the local white trash growing up. Yes there is a city council, mayor, police chief and 3 officers. It's a strange little town for sure! Everyone hates everyone except for when they see each other face to face. I did not do well there. If I don't like you I don't pretend I do in your presence. I won't bother you but I'm not going to buddy up to you either.

My children were picked on so severely by the "important kids" that they came home crying, beat up, and emotionally beat down. When I spoke to the superintendent about the safety of my children he simply ask me to transfer them because of who the bullies parents were. He felt as though his hands were tied, and I guess they were unless he wanted to find another job. I was told I had a open shut law suit but my children were so tired of the whole thing that we decided to just move on and wait for karma to settle the score.
