Courtney, please view your school district board meetings twice a month! The "professionals" within your own community who are usually held to a higher standard of ethics, have fallen into the bullying abyss. I wish the best for you, but, until the staff within your own school district are held to a standard above you....good luck sweetie.

"1 out of 10 of those students drops out of school due to bullying. But I don't think it's the fear of being a "snitch". I believe that it's the fear of it not being put to a stop."

"I've went to the office, guidance, and talked to teachers and counselors but nothing has been done."


A former co-worker had a similar problem with his son in high school and all the talk fell on deaf ears of school officials. It wasn't until they were going to file a lawsuit that the school took action.

Ms. Sechrist, I hope that this LTE will draw similar results for you and your situation will improve. I wish you the best as you graduate and move on into the adult world.


PS. I don't believe the school can police all the social media websites. They are responsible for on campus, buses, school functions, etc.
