Go to the superintendent of school, skip all the other people go stright to the top. Bullying is a serious problem and needs to be addressed as one. Then lets see what happens, I am sure you will get your schools attention! GOOD LUCK!16460
There is not enough education and prevention so that bullying could be prevented . I know that my son was being tormented for quite some time by another student and finally had to try and stand up for himself in total fear. He did and was suspended along with other student. Now the student is waiting for him to come back to finish it off. I guess he thought it was not enough. I feel that there should be more classes on the subject at school for kids and what there rights are as a student at school.16459
I agree about there not being enough education. I feel that not only should there be education but a signed waiver by the parents and child that if their child is bullying or tormenting other children. The Parents will be held accountable for their children's actions. It should be made known very clearly that this is not toleraterated at any age. My husband who works for the police department says to make a complaint with the police station against the school and this will force them to act upon a situation.16458
Bulling start a very young age. My son was a victim of the teacher. The teacher make fun of him and call him ugly names in class in front of other kids, this lack of respect from the teacher opened the door for bulling, and if you parents don't listen to your child, he or she will be lost. Go to school on no planing way and observe the class. I did it and I was surprise to find the teacher creating hate among the children, my son was already isolate, he did not want to talk to anyone. He was attacked when leaving the school, and the school authorities ignored the incident, fortunately, my neighbor acted and protected my son. Watch your child, because there are teachers that develop irrational hate for your child, and use other kids to hurt yours, and watch out because if you complaint, thing will get worst for your child. Teacher will do his or her best to damage your child. I had to take my son out of this school and placed on a charter one. Principals don't act effectively, because teachers are just the reflection of the principal, some kid of mafia. Please don't blame children, if you treat your kids with respect at home and encourage positive thinking, and show unconditional love you should expect trust them. Watch, don't judge them. find the true, don't trust school authorities until you do your JOB, investigation by yourself.16457
you have said exactly how I feel and you said it perfectly. To confirm what you are saying about the principal. In the beginning of school, there was a night where parents were introduced to the children's teachers. the Principal introduced them as the best in the district. He has allowed a teacher to yell at children despite the numerous complaints of parents. Despite numerous complaints by parents regarding the teacher. He down plays everything. I believe my child. I show up all the time at school and ever since then, she has not shown much of her bad habits.16456
thanks, when i talked to the board of education they were like well we can not help you because we are on a transfer from another school, but almost all the kids at westwood elem. in okc are.and they told us to go back to our home school.16455
thanks, well our problem has not gone away this kid continues to bully my kid no matter what just the other day he scratched my kid for a book, and nobody did nothing.i was glad to hear that we can file a report with the police because this will be my last resort i have talked to every body on the higher end and to no avail so we are ready to start filing charges on this kid and the school who lets him get away with it. thanks16454
Sounds like the last school my daughter attended. We fought them and threatened them with police reports on them and the bullies and negligence law-suits. They didn't necessarily stop the bullying but they did protect my daughter a bit better... long enough for me to find her another school and enroll her there.
She's now at the new school, and when they say they don't tolerate bullying, they mean it. One boy gave a girl in the class some lip because she was Hispanic and the teacher immediately called him out and sent him to the office for it. They REALLY don't put up with it - and that was the 1st offense of the year. I haven't heard of any incidences since then either. Most likely because it was an example to the rest of the kids, who gave him a peer's scolding for it later.16453
Recently I had to report to the principal that my daughter is acting very fearful of going into class (kindergarten) because the kid in her class keeps either getting into her face or just irritating her. The school social worker was then involved and the boy was talked to for about the atleast 5th time.2 days later, he hit her in the nose on the bus. We have decided to complete a police report on this child. It sounded wild to me that we would be filing a police report especially on the child. But, just thinking about it, this will send a very loud message to the school, and parents that we are not joking and this is not a laughing matter. I am seeing that a lot more parents are having to settle for this intervention. But, just like any other parent, I want to do all that is necessary for my daughter. I do not want her to be afraid to go to school especially because some child is a special needs kid and not in the correct school. and as a result, he is harrassing her.16452

It does no good!But when we threatend to go to the news and protesting is when they finally started to take action in my 7th grade yr.It started back up in 8th grade until my school finally threatend them with exspulcian16451
