You didn't jsut place the blam for the ills of Louisiana on Gov. Jindal, did you? You really, honestly don't think that Ms. Blanco is to blame, atleast partially?
You're being a tad bit disengenuis.
No I didn't I picked Louisiana because they have some of the lowest state and local taxes to go along with low rankling when it comes to quality of life issues like education, health care etc. They also have a governor who wants to cut taxes, which may serve a minority of the citizens well while keeping the downtrodden underfoot.
I prefer using Oklahoma as an exemplar because they where until recently our political opposites. they're just as bad as Louisiana both are a little better than some 3rd world countries

Unless you have been a child or parent who has had to deal with teasing/bullying/harrassment, then you really do not have any clue how this affects the whole family.
I definitely believe something needs to be done. I don't know if it should be government laws, stricter school discipline, parent involvment or just plain common sense.
I do have to commend one of the middle schools in Leominster which did act accordingly when my daughter started to be bullied/harrassed by fellow students. But she was one of the few that felt safe to tell an adult. And that adult was willing to take the appropriate action by getting parents & resource officer involved & suspending these bullies. These kids need to know this is unacceptable, their are consequences at school & home and their is zero tolerance. Our children need to know they are safe at school physically & emotionally.
Something needs to be done before any more of our children kill themselves!
Good for you you were involved with people who knew how to do their jobs and understood the severity of the situation.Unfortunately that is not always the way it works.
what a joke

It gives us great pleasure to read the rants of democrats angry with the fact that Ted Kennedy's seat went toa Republican. Your anger and vitrol are sustaining us. And this is just the beginning. Change is coming, and it's not the change Obama promised you.
I'd be angry too if I voted for Obama and he failed on just about every campaign promise. You were sold a bill of goods. I never thought there would be a President in my lifetime who would make Bush look good but Obama is getting there. And he's only 1 year onto his term.
make Bush look good! what,do you live in a cave.Yeah,ole Georgie he fixed everything!Put your head back up your butt.moron.
and what does this have to do with being a school bully.Take your pulpit and lame crap and cram it where the sun don't shine.Maybe Dick Cheney will be there.

If the legislature would maybe do their jobs for once we could nip this in the bud right now,not 5 years later and more children being dead.
The penalty should be immeadiate expulsion no second chances.
Absolutely!!!!!! The school faculty as well as administration should be educated on how to handle these situations! I am currently dealing with this and am amazed how my child's school system (not Leom/Fitch) could care less!!!!! They need to take these situations seriously!!!!! I was actually told by the Superintendant "if you don't like it, go elsewhere"!!!!!!!!
