from other kids, parents or the principal, all three could be in question.

I know, it is really bad. I think a lot of it has to do with the parents now days. They both have to work, so they can make it and the kids have to take care of themselves.

Bullying is disgusting. We stress to our kids how wrong it is and how bad it could make others feel. The original post is very vague. Who is being bullied? Is it your child? What grade? My suggestion is to talk to the teacher, I have a feeling reaching out to the principal won't help much. He seems to be a bully himself. I hope you can solve your problem. I agree with Parent, it all begins with the parents these days. Just read some of the other threads on here, there is a lot of bullying taking place on this site.

I also agree that it begins with the parents. Even as an adult, I have been a victim of bullying. And those adults that bully, are more likely to have children that bully. It's very sad to hear that children have to deal with this. I don't remember it being so prevalent in schools when I was a child. It makes me not want to have children, to be honest with you. And social media is NOT helping the situation.

Bullies are nothing more than pu*sies. Best thing for a kid is to stand their ground if they can. Most bullies try to overcompensate for feeling inadequate. And you are right, if the parents are a--holes, 9 times out of 10, their kids will be too.

Maybe Howard Butt-turds can invest some of his six figures into some anti-bullying measures!

Unfortunately, I didn't actually go to the public school... The only reason I know about this is because my friends always made fun of the teachers there. I can ask them!

To answer psquared yes I remember Miss Long. She taught me in the 3rd and 4th grade. She was a great teacher along with Anna Mac, Miss Warren, Ruby Rush, Helen Jorgenson, Miss Dean,Miss Orler and H.S. Gilbert.

You are to be an advocate for your child. If he/she is being bullied, you need to take it to McWilliams and get it resolved. There is zero tolerance at our schools for this. Stand up for your kiddo!

Mrs Long was the principal when I started kindergarten. I believe Butters came when I was in 4th grade.(I can't believe I remember this!)
I had mrs dean in 2nd grade and Helen had a different last name -starting with a 'B'?? I don't remember the others. What years did you go there? It's amazing that I have more memories from grade school than high school. Most of the friends that I made there, are still friends now. I feel very lucky to have grown up in manhattan when I did.

p2, I attended from 1933 thru 1943, that is when we had a 2 year High Schoool. I then went to JT and went into the Navy in 1944. Helen was my cousin. I do not remember when she retired.

I agree with you that Manhattan was a great place to grow up in. Have not been back for a number of years but from what I read in topix and hear it is not,the same. We are planning on comming back for a visit within the next month and when I do I will post my comments.

Being an advocate only goes so far----the rules these administrator's follow, are not made public. We the people are told "NO TOLLERENCE". But when your kid is involved and being bullying---all the tollerence goes to the BULLY. It is sickening how the principal's protect a "SITUATION", how teachers "LOOK THE OTHER WAY" or better yet "DRIVE BY" a situation. NO TOLLERENCE does not exist.

I told my kid---if a kid starts something-----he has my permission to END IT. Talking to these Principal's is like talking to a scared mouse.

Scarey thing---is Butters is suppose to be retiring around 2013---> WHO IS GONNA take his place MR. Pacheco? That is a laugh!
