This is an initiative by 11 year old Jeremiah Aristotle to STOP BULLYING IN SCHOOLS, make schools #BULLYFREEZONE and safe to be in.
So much of bullying goes on in school among the kids.....and no one takes it seriously till something untoward happens and news hits the headlines.
The University Grants Commission vide its letter no F.1-16/2007 (CPP-II) dated June 17, 2009 has reiterated the ban on ragging or bullying of students in Institutions of Higher Learning. The students are therefore directed to strictly desist from any kind of ragging.
But what about bullying and racism that happens in schools. My son Jeremiah, has also been a vicitm of racism (because of his colour) right from his junior school days. I did not allow that to crush his spirit, now he know how to handle it.
But now in middle school it is a lot of bullying by elder boys who team up and hurt other vulnerable boys, just for fun or is it venting out frustration ?? Jeremiah is constantly pushed around by one of his class mate. Once he hurt himself in the desk. Today he was in tears, as he could not stop his so called friend from constantly pouring water on him, drenching his school bag and even shoes every other day. complaining to the parents did not change things.
He realised that, he is not the only one who goes through some form of bullying in and out of school, only thing it does not make it to the headlines till it is very late. Need your support, to help him raise his voice against this growing menace among school boys and put an end - STOP BULLYING!!!
The object and intent of this petition is :
1. To make schools a safe place for children.
2.Equip teachers and children to handle and stop this evil of bullying among school kids.
3.Make children understand that hurting another child is no fun. It is an offence.
4. Recommend the DOE to structure compulsory legal education which will bring awareness among the little citizens that racist remarks, and causing physical hurt or mental torment are all punishable under law.
This will break the predator and the prey mentality and empower the children to grow as better citizens.
Your support and suggestions are appreciated as there are silent victims around us. Both the bully and the bullied need help as they are children who need good foundation to grow as responsible and strong citizens.
