Another sad tragedy resulting from bullying.

  This has got to end.  More teenage suicides are the result from bullying.

Mom says Springfield boy, 11, who committed suicide was repeatedly bullied at school

 Ready for the shocker, the parent called the school every week to get them involved to put an end to the harassment.

She phoned the school repeatedly since Carl began attending in September but the bullying continued, she said.

More below the fold

Teen Commits Suicide Due to Bullying: Parents Sue School for Son’s Death

Family Wants No Money but Insists School Address Bullying and Three Other Suicides

 Yes, that is three other suicides.  This is truly sad and like the story above,

The lawsuit — filed March 27, alleges that the quiet but likable boy, who was involved in theater and music, was called “gay,” “fag,” “queer” and “homo” and often in front of his teachers. Most of the harassment took place in math class and the teacher — an athletic coach — was accused of failing to protect the boy.

The school knew this was happening.  Pam has mentioned that her state of North Carolina has been trying to get an anti-bullying law passed.  But the “Family Values” crowd wants the bullying to continue.

And last year they succeeded in killing it.

These tragedies need to stop.
