Petition to Department of Education, Dr.Jerry Thacker, Mike Seger

reACT to Bullying

In June my local school district was in receipt of lyrics from a student’s Sound Cloud account. The lyrics were threatening in nature and included disturbing hate speech and many direct threats. The lyrics included the words “nigger, spics, homo, and retard”. There were songs about rape, beastiality, killing, and seeking revenge. In December I learned that our child, as well as 4 other students, were named specifically in a degrading and threatening manner. There was a song about our son named Ben the Retard. The school never informed the parents our children were specifically named and the child who produced these lyrics still attends the school.   If you sign this petition you are recognizing that at the heart of bullying is the school districts reaction to it. If they ignore and downplay bullying it will continue to thrive and grow, causing a climate of fear and making our schools unsafe. By signing this petition you are also saying to your school district you think they need to not only acknowledge incidences of bullying but they need to also reACT in a swift matter to protect our children. This petition is asking those in school administration to address shortfalls and to find solutions to the ongoing bullying problem including giving parents the confidence that they will not tolerate hate speech in any way or form. Our schools must show us that they are reACTing to each and every direct and indirect threat made to our children.Bullying policies mean nothing if no one reACTS  to them. If you sign the petition you are acknowledging this is a problem and your school district needs to be held accountable for the day to day safety of our children.  Our schools should be safe for all students. They should be places where everyone feels safe and free from harm.

Take Back Loudoun County Schools, hold Eric Williams Accountable!

According to high number of claims filed with the Civil Rights Office for descrimation and retaliation against children and families, LCPS routinely violates policy, rules, and regulations and even after found in violation nobody holds anyone accountable. The Principal’s appear to act out, retaliate, and abuse authority and nobody tries to stop them. It’s time the school system is given back to parents, the taxpayers to control. Our system now is failing our children and families. School board does absolutely nothing, they are a useless group of elected officials that do nothing. Parents are left helpless and powerless when gross violations occur. Outside agencies brought in to review never site clear violations so obvious problems are swept under a huge rug of corruption and lies. It’s time the parents see accountability.  Eric Williams, Superintendent, needs to be immediately removed and replaced with someone who will demand answers and reduce the number of claims filed with the Office of Civil Rights. A Superintendent who wont hide behind emails and other staffers and pretend there is no issue. A Superintendent who will partner with parents to establish trust between the school system and community. More importantly replaced with someone who will answer the phone!

Should we hold parents responsible for their Child bullying other children?

Hello Everyone, I am La'Cinda Trotter, let me Tell you my Story,  when I was a Teenager the other girls in school use to bully me for a reason that didn't make sense to me, My hair was Long, My last name, I was taller than everyone and because of my glasses and Complexion, Kids Don't realize how that impact you for the rest of your life,  Even when you try to put it behind you, something usually trigger it as an adult, My goal is to Stop the Bullies in their Tracks, So I started a Program in my City to Change Bullies into Supporters, thru the Arts, See I figures out that most children bully other children because of either their home life or maybe they are being picked on in their Neighborhood and That's why they bring it to school, But we as adults need to help them Realize that they are important also, Parents please start paying more attention to your child/Children before it’s too late, some kids that are being bullied kill themselves and sometimes they kill others, So I propose that the program be allowed to Tour schools and Young as Kindergartner on up,  If we can stop the bullying now maybe we can stop the Murders When they Become a Teenager! Short Story My daughter is 14 and Was being Bullied up until she graduated this year from Jr. High, They Teased her because she's overweight, Have bumps on her face, Really no reason at all, Kids would throw food at her and she would tell the teachers and nothing happened  except the Teachers would tell her to go have a seat, My girlfriend daughter is now homeschooled because she was bullied, Zakiyyah was bullied because she was Muslim, Quiet and smart, kids make up any kind of reasons so I think that the first offense A parent should be notified, 2nd offence, parent's and Child will have to go to therapy and Pay a Fine of $250 and in school Suspension which would go to a fund for the Youth,  3rd offense, it will be placed in the child's record as a Bully until they either reach the age of 18 , Homeschool and a $500. WE NEED TO TAKE THIS SERIOUS BECAUSE KIDS LIVES MATTER! #Alllivescount
