Signed and will forward Nancy. This type of thing can scar these kids for life. The schools, teachers and administrators both, need to get fully involved and not just "let them work it out", that does NOT work with these kids so bent on destroying someone else's happiness. I think they should be expelled for the remainder of the term and let the parents deal with it, why should they just get a slap on the wrist and come back and start over again?

Petition signed. Bullying is unacceptable no matter where it is done. In my opinion, those who bully have low self esteem, and bully to make themselves feel better. Only by picking on those who are weaker then themselves, do they feel good. We all know that is not the answer, But hopefully there will be a way to get through to these kids and set them straight.

Petition signed.

Bullying is not a rite of passage.
Bullying signifies something is wrong, very wrong mentally for the person doing the bullying.
Schools should protect those that are being bullied.
Schools should go after the bulliers.

TY, Nancy.

If the family unit was strong in this country and eveywhere, bullying would be far less of a problem. We need to watch our own children, and also speak up when we see other's children. We are the grown-ups.

schools need to have a much stricter environment, they are running riot kids with such lax discipline, teachers do nothing about bullying the balance of power is topsy turvy and kids need strict and firm guidance and help to avert bullying and protection from teachers and then support to recover from it.

I see lots of bullying type behavior in my daughter's school, and it always seems that the kids who like to bully are pretty obviously suffering from extremely messed-up home home lives. The bullies need intervention, for the bullying but in general, like torturing animals, it's a symptom of a much larger underlying problem. Put the issue of the bullying aside for the moment, and treat is as a desperate cry for help. The victims should be taught to pity the bullies, and given counseling as well. I like bulliestobuddies.com, recommended by a teacher, it helped us.

Bullies are cowards, bullies are weak, bullies hurt those that they can to try to feel stronger. We need to figure out what is wrong with all of us that we allow it to happen.

Michael Vick is a heinous bully. His treatment of dogs is unconscionable, yet multitudes have forgiven him, and worship him simply because he excels at a stupid game. When our culture stops rewarding bullies for bullying, maybe the bullying will stop.

I hope the 2 boys and the girl who orchestrated the rape of that poor little girl are imprisoned for life. They destroyed her life, so they need to lose any chance of a decent life for themselves. What horrid little brats, to so coldly calculate a way to humiliate and hurt a fellow human being. It makes me so sad.
