A CALL FOR THE WCBOE TO RESTRUCTURE THEIR ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN

      Wilson, NC

There are far too many kids being bullied and suffering at the hands of others. The physical scars are plain to see but the emotional ones aren't and can change the life of a child forever. These emotional scars are just as painful as the physical ones and can cause a child to withdraw, rebel, suffer from depression or even worse. In our schools the children are taught about fire safety, pedestrian safety, drug and alcohol prevention, the dangers of talking to strangers and how to be safe on the internet. Currently there doesn't seem to be as strong of an initiative in the school system to educate students and parents on bullying and its effects. The Wilson County School System should be more proactive and provide more of this type of education. Burying their heads in the sand or chalking incidents up to "kids being kids" just isn't enough. Times are hard; people are meaner and children are at risk. Stand up, set an example Wilson County Schools and demand responsibility and good citizenship!!  Take a firm, zero tolerance stand and show these children and their parents they are safe and that you truly care!!!

      I'm a graduate of the Wilson County school system, as is my husband and my daughter. I think all of us experienced bullying at some level. The coddling must stop. Hold people accountable for their actions, whether they are students or grown. A no tolerance policy for bullying in our schools works for me.

      Our schools are turning into breeding grounds for increasing prison populations! Fights, drugs, gangs, larceny. With no punishment, no consequence. No remorse.

      Nothing except bad attitude towards the teachers, staff and other students. It is a small percentage of students that is screwing up the schools for everyone. Maybe 5% or so. It is not possible to teach effectively when you are constantly correcting bad behavior because you are not allowed to refer the children for discipline without enough paperwork to brief the Supreme Court!

      These children need to go. It is not the job of the schools to raise them and teach them everything about life. Teachers are not parents and regardless of how much Mr. Bulson and the school board wants them to be, it is not right and will not work. If parents won't or can't make their children behave, get protective services involved and yank the kids. Better to endure the cost now and make educated, productive citizens of them then continue the cycle. Either way, this grand social experiment needs to stop because it it hurting 100 children for every 1 it might help.
