To date this year, we are approaching 50 children who felt the need to take their lives due to a problem they are encountering at school, through text, social media, and in their communities at large. Our federal government has acknowledged this is an issue, yet they remain hesitant to end this cycle.
We elected our president because of his willingness to see that change was done. The mental damage that students are taking on will cost all of us down the road, and while states have various laws, most similar and some not, the broader problem is still not being dealt with.
I was also made aware that some parents who tried to help their children when in crisis in school, are now jailed.
Children have the right to attend any school safely, and when problems do arise, that staff handle them to their conclusion.
I am asking for your support to put pressure on the government, and for them to see that this is a problem, and to help our nations youth to get back on track.
This year we have now 48 children who have died from little being done to protect them while at school, or by other means. This nation should not have schools where children fear them, and do not want to go to school. We have Anti Bullying laws all over this country, except a few states where there isn't one yet. However, those states who do have them, their is no enforcement, and lack of checking up on those situations that do arise. In some cases they havent done much of anything.
We as parents demand better from our educational institutions, places our children can learn, and not be harmed. It is time for something to be done.
Sign a National Anti-Bullying Law!
