Dekalb Public Schools Investigation Finds No Bullying In Student Suicide
Dude -I am one who needs a higher bit of evidence than normal to go along with a claim. On this issues - Dekalb Public Schools missed the ball.
The mother repeatedly went to the school to seek protection for her son. The school administration did nothing to head off the situation.
I respect the fact that they got a retired judge to run the investigation, giving it a bit of credibility. Unfortunately in this case - when there WAS a need for an activist bias in the hopes of protecting others - the ball was dropped.
Again - this is coming from "me", a critic who has watched all of this transpire.
The Dekalb Public Schools knows that it is going to get sued by the mother of the little boy who committed suicide. The principle and administration ignored her repeated requests. (7 visits to the school). I DO NOT SUPPORT BLOCK BUSTER LAWSUITS AGAINST PUBLIC SCHOOLS as they drain needed resources out of the public treasury and into the hands of private pockets - the VICTIM and the LAWYER. This lawsuit, however, should be about forging corrective action within the Dekalb Public Schools - this is preposerous.
