I too would like to know if this is true. And what the school is doing about the apparant problem that is going on in this school! How many more of our children are going to result to this, because they feel threatened or hopeless....

My sister is a teacher in the elem school in Athens. A lot of parents use the school as babysitting I never thought that it be that way drs, lawyers, teachers, it is sad that people have them but don't raise them. I myself never could have children and I would love to be able .I feed my neighbor's kids and help with there homework and they are a nurse and insurance man. A shame

How do we know the school should be blamed? Was bullying involved? If so, was it physical bullying at school? Did anyone address it to school authority? Did anyone take any action? Was this child cyber bullied?

I realize our schools have problems; however, the main cause for inadequacies in our school system actually start in the student's home. Far too many parents expect the schools to raise their kids.

From what I was told she was being bullied at school unsure about the cyber bullying. I have not seen anything on her facebook, but of course I cannot see any of her private messages. And her name is Felicia, she will be missed.

No sorry not bullying! She was depressed over a boy! Guess she felt hopeless. People need to stop blaming schools & look @ parents that need to pay more attention to their kids & know what's going on so they can stop the problems before a tragedy occurs!

I agree. Some people are too quick to blame the school. I agree schools do have serious issues to address and parents/guardians need to get more involved in these issues. Don't expect the school authorities to fix all the social problems kids face.

This is so sad! I'm praying for the family and the kids at that school. Parents and Teachers need to communicate more about how the kids are doing in school. If they are active, accepted by other student, and fitting in. School is for learning, not for babysitting. Parents need to quit letting others raise their children because they are busy.

Bullying is a problem in mercer county, but these children are only doing how they see their parents act.

If this continues, bullying needs to be a criminal act. Regardless of the age of the bully vs the target. And regardless whether a life was taken from it or not. Bullying happens everywhere, even as adults. Look what topix is.
