Lee's Summit R-7 School District: Standing By And Watching Bullying
How many of you have seen the psa with the boy on the bus or the girl in hall being bullied? The ad is to help children understand how to not be a bystander. It is a wonderful concept.
What are we teaching these same children when teachers, administrators, bus drivers, aides, etc. or the bullies? How are they going to address that?
It happens every day. Thousands of children are bullied by the adults that we entrust our children to. We are powerless to protect them because of the cover-ups, the lying, the retaliation, and the total failure of the system from the district level all of the way to Washington DC.
When are we going to demand that our legislators, administrators, teachers, and public officials do their job and protect the most innocent of our society? I'm ready to demand it now.
