Bullies win Again
This year we can expect over 300,000 children say they were bullied at school, and just today 160,000 of them will stay at home because they are too afraid to go at all. Those are very disturbing numbers. What is our education system doing about this? I had no idea that the problem was so widespread and that so many children were affected by it. Obviously the current Liberal minded way of dealing with the problem is not working.
Morgan Jones can tell you all about it. She is 13 years old and once upon a time attended R.A Sennett Public School in Whitby, but now she is one of those staying at home because going to school means a beating, and harassment. This is a perfect example of a program that is not working. Can someone please explain to me why the students that are doing the bullying are still going to school and the victims are the ones staying at home? It’s not like the school does not know who they are. But I suppose their “rights” are more important. Is that how it is? The school says it “will” put a plan in place if Morgan goes back to school, but there is no way they can prevent it from happening again. They couldn’t even prevent it from happening right outside the Principals office in the first place. It’s no wonder she does not want to return. The students responsible for these attacks should be the ones kept at home, and those parents forced to find ways of dealing with their behavior.
Morgan Jones moved to Ontario from Nova Scotia, and was looking forward to making new friends and settling into a new life. We all know the difficulties at that age especially having to leave friends behind and starting all over again. Add to that the alienation that comes with bullying makes for a very unpleasant existence. Depression and anxiety about personal attacks are an unnecessary addition, and can be prevented.
Since The Sun put pictures on the net exploiting this young girls pain, in the guise of a news story, why are the pictures of the ones responsible for this not plastered all over the net identifying them? Why is it the victims the only face we see? Show us the culprits and let them be embarrassed and humiliated for a change. Perhaps that might help a bit. At least something will be getting done about it.
