Not on here to slander, gossip or start a racial debate. I am a concerned parent that would like to know first hand from students or anyone that is experiencing bullying issues at our local schools. How big is the bullying problems? Besides the obvious physical threats of bullying, what other types of emotional bullying or intimidation tactics are taking place (examples please). If you have experienced bullying or are experiencing it now, have you been to school officals (teachers, principals, etc...)? Have they or what have they done to resolve the problem? I am interested in showing this data to superintendent Chuck Hamilton because I personally have reason to believe it is anb ongoing problem that is not being addressed properly. I have recently spoken to at least 3 students who have or are being bullied in both elementary & middle school. Ranging from excluding a child from a group, whispering, laughing to making comments about clothes to slapping students on the head while in the hallway or even starting rumors that students will be jumped after standing up for themselves. I have also been told that issues have been taken to school officials; however, nothing was accomplished. I was also told by one student that he/she wouldn't go to school officals because nothing would be done. Even teachers have commented that they witness bullying & have expressed concern to officials only to have the concern ignored. Children should be able to attend school without the threat of bullying interferring with their education. It is 2012, there has to be a ZERO tolerance for any form of bullying or intimidation. I want to hear what students or parents have to say about this so that when I attempt to address the issue with officials, I can be a voice for any and all of you that are victims!
what happened when you went to him with this?
