I am trying to get as many signatures as I can to get the Bristol Borough School District to change their bullying policy. Both of my sons have suffered through horrendous bullying and the school has done nothing about it. I have filed police reports, taken photos of bruises on my son, been to the principal, disciplinarian, etc and still nothing. My younger son is afraid to go to school! He has been kicked, punched, held down, called names, laughed at, bloody noses, things taken from him and hand sanitizer rubbed in his eyes.
My older son was attacked by 12 kids and the school thinks it is kids being kids. He has been called names, put down because he IS itellgient and tape placed over is mouth.
My sons are so afraid to go to some of the teachers or other staff members because their only answer is, "Are you sure they are not just joking around??" You have got to be kidding me!! When I contact the school I get a song and a dance. They tell me they can't go around accusing other students of bullying and it can't come from me it has to come from my kids. News Flash....my kids are afraid to tell you because you won't do anything about it. It's sad that most of the teachers are willing to do whatever they can for the students but their hands are basically tied when policy says otherwise. Do you realize what bullying does to a person? Well, my children will NOT be statistics. The schools are afraid to put out money for programs for these disturbed children who bully. They are afraid to put out money for expelling students. Well, it has to change and it starts with me. Please sign this petition so that it can be brought to the local authorities and school board. Help me make a safer place for our children while getting the education they deserve!
