That was my concern. Did the student not report the incidents, or was nothing done before?
The parents and teachers of these idiots sure taught them well. Did I really read she felt sorry for the one arrainged? I don't!!!!

Marshall felt bad for the one arranged because it is Christmas a non Jewish Holiday ? She is a real Gem. Not a word of empathy about the young lady who had to endure such hateful action. I would say go back to Barre but they do not want you there as well.

As for the punk who treated this Jewish kid bad. I hope the Judge makes you find out what her people had to endure. A lot more sever then any punishment you will ever get. I hope your parents are proud.

How can something so hateful still be going on in this day and age.

the school did nothing up until now? How ridiculous! How can Marshall say any actions were taken when she did nothing! I grew up in this school system and it has gone to shi* since Marshall stepped in as Superintendent. Someone should tell her to go back to where she came from and tend to her horses instead of leaving major issues in the school unattended!

It is so shocking that the this kind prejudice still exists. I only wish the police could indict the parents because most likely that is where the kids learned this.

As someone who has been on the receiving of this kind of abuse, I have to say my heart goes out to the victim. You never really get over such attacks.

The Jewish people came to this country to escape centuries of persecution for just practicing their religion. It is sad that the roots of this still exists in America.

The student did report the incident and the school did basically nothing until the parents of the vic went to the police. This has been going on for quite some time.
It's a sad state of affairs when these kids rule the school.
and I agree...I feel horrible for this girl, and have no sympathy at all for this kid.

"It's a sad time for some students in our school as a result of this. I'm sure it's a difficult time for the student who was arraigned," Marshall said.

...You have GOT to be kidding me. Difficult time for THEM?? Yes, please continue to spill your hatred and ignorance on us you poor thing...give me a break. If it were my child that did this they would be safer in jail!

To the poor girl who underwent such horrific things, please know that people like that are the minority. You should be applauded for speaking out, that took courage unlike what this coward did.

North Middlesex has a long, long history of tolerating this type of behavior and of treating the victim like the perpetrator. Parents who complain are often told they have to produce proof of their child's complaint (and these types of situations rarely leave "hard" proof, something the school administrators know all too well.) And in the meantime the other student's are kept informed step by step of what is going on, so they can let the victim know they're aware and at least give the impression that the admin is not with the kid. The administrators know this, after years of practice, and usually the problem "goes away" or "resolves itself."
The VAST majority of NM kids are great, but the moral cowardice of the district administrators shown over the years winds up tarnishing all of them.

Perhaps a merger with Lunnenburg will fix everything?
