Control the bullying in our school system
This petition had 480 supporters
Bullying is a major issue in our school system if you want to open your eyes to it or not. The situations occurring inside those walls are not being dealt with properly. This in turn is changing our children in horrible ways. Its time we change these rules and find an outlet for these types of situations. Finding a positive outcome from a negative situation and catching it at the first instance could have a major impact on our children, the way they feel, and how they perform.
1. placing the student or students in reasonable fear of harm to the student's or students' person or property;
2. causing a substantially detrimental effect on the student's or students' physical or mental health;
3. substantially interfering with the student's or students' academic performance; or
4. substantially interfering with the student's or students' ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school.
These 4 things are what makes you a bully. Not all at once but even just one at a time. These subjects are not taken lightly by parents who have gone through them and not been able to voice themselves in a room full of howling wolves. Our school systems hands are tied!! The same school system that cares for our children and we depend on to make sure those children remain safe and secure when in the operating hours of a school day. They have now become immune to any if not all bullying scenarios, and turning their backs on our kids. I am a witness to this. I am exhibit "A". It has to stop. These kids will be our future and we are not leading them in an appropriate manner.
The ISBE website states: as bullying happens these things are addressed and may include:
Includes the interventions that can be taken to address bullying, which may include, but are not limited
to school social work services, restorative measures, social-emotional skill building, counseling, school
psychological services, and community-based services.
None of these things are happening!!!! We as parents are not able to know if they are because of these schools having privacy policies over the issues. HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD IS SAFE NOW?????
Please sign this for your children. I will step forth to make a change and be heard! I accept any one of you to follow! How many children have to feel like suicide is the ONLY way for it all to stop? How many children have to be mentally damaged by the words of another. You can't take these things back. Once it happens its up to us to fix it at that very moment. No hesitation. No waiting. Right then...right now!
Please stand together and make a change! Stop the bullying in the school systems! Make it as serious offense as a child being pushed to the edge and finally physically sticking up for themselves only to be forced to deal with criminal outcomes! It is not fair and this should no longer be tolerated!
