      If a child is required by law to go to school, and parents are required by law to make sure they are in attendance...please tell me where the LAW is to protect our children against what they are subjected to on a daily basis? This is no longer a simple child calling another child fat, or stupid...this is an issue that will effect our children their entire life!!!

      I've experienced first hand the negative effects of bullying and I don't want to see anyone else have to face that in a place where they are supposed to feel safe.
