Word on the street is that the school board is a little upset with me posting the parents letter. Guess what? GOOD they should be! A little late though don't you think?
I have lost count of parents that have emailed me with almost the exact same stories.
Their child being bullied, school officials DO NOTHING!
This is not just a recent problem, its been going on for YEARS!
The bully's suffer no consequences for their actions. Matter of fact they are rewarded by being allowed to participate in school activities, sports, etc. But the poor victim and their families sure suffer! What is wrong with this picture?
Here is a private message sent to me, so I will not post the sender: COPIED & PASTED
this mess with school board is no surprise years ago i spoke to a board member about an incident with a substitute teacher and my daughter she went to the board an they told her not to stir up any I see nothing has changed
What do other citizens think about this? Well here ya go!
She came on my county page and tried to bully me as well. The apple does not fall far from the tree. Open your eyes Gates County School Board, before this is taken to the point of no return. Tyler Britton's rights have been violated, by your OWN rules in your own school manual.
My advice to the Barnes's would be to hire an attorney and to sue the Gates County School System. It appears it is the only thing that they will understand, because when you ask for help to protect your child, you receive NOTHING! That is all the Barne's and other parents have asked for ...HELP TO PROTECT THEIR CHILDREN.
How sad is that!
What I am trying to wrap my head around, is why this school is refusing to address this bullying situation. I mean cyber-bulling and right out bullying is a very hot topic in the news; especially with the kids that have committed suicide because of being bullied!!! I believe someone should contact the National Board of Education in Washington DC to see if they can send someone to investigate this school because I "believe" Tyler's civil rights have been violated!!
