He will be missed by a lot of students. Hopefully Bolton is a town with more class to not have a site like this.

Please pray, whoever the replacement is-- is NOT a good ole boy. For the sake of the students, the town and taxpayers. PRAY. Pray also that McDonald finds the wisdom (and someone that will hire him) to move the heck out of town and gets replaced with a bright, HONEST and trustworthy superintendent.

Pray.

The next principal will be Rick Merrill. They have been grooming him for 4 years now for the job.

My kids love him, very approachable and fair. Rick Merrill would be a good replacement. He isn't afraid to get involved and doesn't show favortism. As far as "good ole boy", anyone who gets hired that isn't from out of town is going to be labeled that on here!

How do you figure that he is the cause of the bullying?

Just really ask some of the students, the ones who are truly being picked on. I am not going on here giving names and what happened. I have heard stories for the past 7 years. Yes it maybe hear say. But when I heard so many from children that sort of all line up. Like I stated just start asking some of the ones who have a problem in the school. Not the ones who never have anything wrong.We have a major issue with on line bullying in our area also.

I agree, there is a bullying problem and it breaks my heart. Kids can be so cruel to each other, but alot of that comes from bullying parents. They encourage their kids to do it because they did it...probably still do! Makes them feel better about themselves by exposing others weaknesses, or even worse, by making things up. I wish there was an easy fix, there isn't. All we can hope is that it is addressed and kids who do it are held accountable...make an example of a few and maybe, just maybe others will think twice.
Thats just the thing

If the kids (these days) don't "fear" (HIGHLY respect) the principal, they he/she is doing something wrong.

We seem to have had this problem at the high school for years! now--the students perceive the principal as a "friend." WRONG!!!

If you are one of his buddies on a team or what ever, family, friends, you can do what ever you please is my understanding. There was one case a few years back where a poor student was mentally abused by a very rich student. the poor student never could even tell her side. Principals should never take sides, this man did every time.

Yes, I have also seen that the kids that bully have parents that bully. Also, I have seen the bully parents bully their own kids. Another thing I have noticed about bullies is that they usually possess the same weakness they despise so much in others.

Perhaps they should hire someone who just came back from the "war."
Somebody who truly knows what both bullying and survival MEAN.

GONE are the days of "teaching moments" and "just love them more." Such b.s. to start out with! Leave it to Ti to be living in the '60s, still.

Now. Don't hold your breath on the idea that they will hire someone outside of the system. BIG, big doubts that that will ever happen.

Kids are downright horrible at that high school. My oldest daughter received rape threats on the school computer, nothing was done and she dropped out. My youngest is now in the same position and again, nothing is being done. Parents don't want to be placated by the principal, we want results!
When I went to the high school, nothing like this ever happened. Mr. C and Mr. V didn't take crap from any kid and the kids respected that more than trying to be their friend.
