Letter: Bullying is a problem By: Sara Tolbert, Hudson, Hudson Star-Observer
Yet another school shooting and another child that has taken their own life. While it has yet to be determined as to the shooters reasons, both horrific happenings are most likely another story of bullying.
Yet another school shooting and another child that has taken their own life. While it has yet to be determined as to the shooters reasons, both horrific happenings are most likely another story of bullying. As this becomes more commonplace in our society, it will also become a more commonplace way of the bullied to react towards those that bully them.
Makes one wonder whether or not this could ever happen in Hudson. But we have a policy in place at our schools against bullying here, right? Well, policies are nothing more than a piece of paper unless they are enforced. Of course our schools enforce those policies, right? I’m sure if they responded to this, they will tell us that they do enforce the policy against bullying and do not tolerate it. What do they really do to enforce the policy, well, that’s confidential of course.
However, the reality of what is happening in our local schools is that if and when they are pushed into action, they will give the bully a very stern finger shaking. It seems they are more concerned about what could happen to the school by enforcing these policies than they are about the children being bullied day after day.
So, if the school is reluctant to take bullying seriously, we have to take action ourselves. Very recently, I had little choice but to finally pull my child out of school due to the bullying they have received and the lack of support from the school itself. Unfortunately it isn’t an option for our family to leave Hudson so I have decided to try and help make a difference here. Although it isn’t enough, I have started a Facebook page for our community to help bring awareness to the issue of bullying. I have had plenty parents and students alike email with their own stories and concerns.
I would love to find others that will step up to this growing issue. It would be great to work together so that all of our children can be educated in an environment where they feel safe and can enjoy being in school. All are encouraged and welcome to share ideas. Let’s work together and make a difference before it’s too late. Please reach out to me on Facebook at Ban Bullying Everywhere or [email protected].
