Here we are, less than one month into the new school year...
Does bullying exist in your child's school district? What about in his or her own school?
You bet it does!
And it occurs not only between students, but it might be occurring by teachers!
Watch this video titled Bullied: A Student, a School and a Case That Made History: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEH75H8fPQY
Then contact your school's principal and ask him (or her) to order a copy for his school. Ask by what date it will be ordered (budget won't be a problem; it's free. If you need to take a 44-cent stamp to the principal's office, take it (but it probably can be ordered by e-mail, too)).
And then follow up in two weeks to ask if it has been received. And then every week until it is received. Then ask if the principal and staff have watched it. And when it will be shown to every student in the school.
Get involved! Remember, you are the parent. You are responsible to see that the schools are safe for your child(ren).
Be relentless. And don't go it alone. Align yourself with other parents and insist on safe schools. Now!
And post your comment here, naming the school you will ask to order the film today.
You think that teachers don't bully students? "My son has a teacher who actually calls the kids wieners and makes fun of them if they are struggling. He has a mug and sign in the classroom that say 'I see stupid people'.”
That quote is from an article on www.WrightsLaw.com Go to that site; then search for "Bullying" and look down the list for that article. You'll spot it easily from the leading quote.
Does it happen in Woodstock District 200? You bet! It was spotted by a technical consultant who was called in to conduct a proper Functional Behavior Assessment for a student whose absenteeism was over 60% for the school year (and never reported as truant!). What happened to the teacher? Nothing!
