Cindy Fernandez started this petition to Edgewood ISD

Within the past couple of weeks, there have been a couple of accounts of sexual assault at Edgewood High School in Edgewood, Texas. Every time it has happened, the case has been brought to the attention of the school only for absolutely nothing to come of it. These young men learn nothing whatsoever from their invasion of girl's bodies. Without the school properly handling the situation and addressing punishments for this properly, this issue at Edgewood High School will continue. 

My name is Cindy Fernandez and I care because it already happened to me, and the last thing I would want is for someone to have to go through the same thing I did. I was brave enough to come forward, but the next girl might not be. These situations can seriously lead to many pyschological issues. It has caused me enough trauma and nothing was done to serve me justice. I know that no punishment will take away that pain but the fact that there was nothing done to open up the eyes of the other student bothers me. The other student is getting away with it and is serving no type of punishment. That just shows him that it is okay and that other students can do it as well without serving a punishment.

I was sexually harassed on a school trip and I reported it immediately and the best I got from the school was an apology from the student, and I got the superintendent to make school assembly's about sexual harassment/assault to the high school students. There should be more done, there should be a form of punishment, not just an apology, and an assembly. Not just for me but for all students.
