Sophie Smith started this petition to Kids and

I want to change how the school system works. The school system is the 3rd leading cause of suicide in kids and young adults. Me, being a young adult, would like the 7.4% committing suicide to go way down. I want the school system to stop not caring about their students and start actually listening to us kids. There is no reason why they shouldn’t listen to what we have to say. 17.2% of high schoolers have considered suicide while 7.4% actually did commit suicide. Suicides between ages 10-24 nationally increased 56% from 2007 to 2017. The rate of suicides in that age group rose from 6.8 deaths per 100,000 people to 10.6 deaths, according a report by the National Center for Health Statistics. In New Jersey, they have seen an alarming rise in attempted overdose in ages 9-12. At age 11, I was depressed and cut myself on a few occasions. I was very suicidal. This was all because of my school. They didn’t have a good councilor nor a good principal. I got bullied a lot but didn’t tell anyone about it because I knew no one would help me. I don’t want other kids to go through what I had to go through. There is a video on YouTube called, “I sued the school system,” by Prince Ea. He talks about how messed up the school system is. If you can, please watch this video. It sums up what the school system does to us kids.
