My 13 yr old niece is being bullied big time.
It's another case of policies being in place but not enforced.
I've seen some of the bullying on her FB page and got screencaps including threats to bash her and her older brother with a baseball bat .
Her FB page is now set to private to avoid more of this.
The school won't do anything about that because it was out of school hours.
Besides, a lot of it does go on during school hours, because they have their phones in class.
The teachers don't give a carp if they use FB on their phones during class, but they have been told theywill be expelled if they record anything that happens at the school. (You will see the reason for this below and it's clearly a CYA move- not to protect students).
It's gotten so bad she's been skipping a LOT of school. She is afraid for her life. The school pays attention to the absences- though her dad's complaints about the serious bullying and threats that go on at the school fall on deaf ears.
What makes this even worse?
This is the same school that got international attention when a bullying victim faught back. And they still do nothing. We even have a thread about it here:
